What is WILD?

WILD is a leadership program available as a series of evening talks, workshops, and networking sessions available to those who idenfity as female residents and fellows at University of California San Francisco.


“While matriculation into medical school is over half women, men continue to outnumber women in leadership positions. Consider the numbers in academic medicine. Only 16% of medical school Deans are women, only 15% of department chairs are women, and men are more than twice as likely to become full professor when compared with women.” 

—Data from the Association of American Medical Colleges

Our Mission

Women in medicine remain underrepresented at all levels of leadership. WILD seeks to combat this by launching women into their careers in a way that combats systemic gender inequities holding women back in academic medicine.
