Center for Women in Medicine
Center for Women in Medicine (CWM) is a non-profit organization formed in 2004 in response to the increasing numbers of women in medicine training and practice. CWM's vision is to elevate the significance of a physician's emotional, relational and spiritual life within the medical training process. CWM provides guidance and resources to women in medical training and practice to help them build a solid life foundation from which to live out their professional calling. This grant will continue the expansion of the Let Your Life Speak program, which now will consist of two components, both taught at Vanderbilt: an elective course and a series of workshops. The course, offered as an elective to first and second year students, will be taught fourteen weeks per semester in both the spring and fall terms during 2008. The workshops, titled VMS Live, are a series of two-hour workshops that are proposed to be required of all Vanderbilt medical students. In the 2008 pilot year only the first-year class (104 students) will participate. Students in the workshops and classes will complete pre- & post-class personal assessments.
