An Innovative Educational and Mentorship Program for Emergency Medicine Women Residents to Enhance Academic Development and Retention

Given the discrepancy between men and women’s equal rates of medical school matriculation and their rates of academic promotion and leadership role acquisition, the need to provide mentorship and education to women in academic medicine is becoming increasingly recognized. The authors of this article designed a program to provide easily accessible mentorship and contact with role models for trainees at the departmental and institutional levels. Their model may be useful to other emergency medicine residencies looking to provide such opportunities for their women residents.
