Project summary: There are discrepancies in pay, position, and perks between men and women in all fields, including in medicine and surgery. This is mediated, in part, by a discomfort in negotiation by women, which can potentially be mitigated by negotiation training. Many negotiation workshops require in-person training and interaction. There are a number of barriers to access to such programs.
We therefore propose to build on our extensive experience in delivering negotiation workshops for AAMC to create and evaluate a virtual online negotiation workshop specifically for female physicians and trainees that will assess virtual means of interaction.
“I cannot adequately express how thrilled I am to have won this very prestigious award… in part for the award itself, but perhaps more so for the opportunity to design and evaluate a virtual negotiation workshop that can truly be impactful for female physicians and trainees. It is truly wonderful to partner with the AMA on this important endeavor!” –Dr. Chagpar
Project summary: RISE WIMS is a formal research sponsorship program for women in medicine and science at SIU School of Medicine, dedicated to promoting a community of research practice for women physicians, which will lead to an increase in presentation of scholarly work at regional and national meetings and publications from women researchers.
“We are honored to have been awarded a grant through the 2020 Joan F. Giambalvo Fund for the Advancement of Women. What a tremendous privilege to be able to give deserving women in medicine and science at our institution an opportunity to expand their horizons and lead groundbreaking research, narrowing the gender equity chasm. We are grateful to the AMA for its invaluable support.” –Drs. Prakash, Han, Hingle, and El-Amin
The AMA is seeking innovative research proposals focusing on professional work/practice issues that affect women physicians, including but not limited to:
- Leadership training protocols
- Gender-based physician practice patterns
- Physician satisfaction or burnout
- Retention incentives
- Practice re-entry issues
