Welcome to the 2020 AAMC GREAT Group and GWIMS Joint Professional Development Conference
Call for Proposals


The Joint GREAT Group (including the PhD, MD-PhD and Postdoctorate) and GWIMS Professional Development Conference Program Committee invites proposals for concurrent sessions at the 2020 conference. The meeting will take place September 10-12, 2020 in Chicago, IL.

This unique joint meeting among faculty and administrative leaders of biomedical PhD, MD-PhD, postdoctoral programs, and advocates for women’s advancement and leadership in science and medicine aims to explore new opportunities for synergy between these communities. Specifically, this meeting will focus on strategies and solutions to address issues at the intersection of gender equity, biomedical training, and the biomedical workforce at large.

Presenting at the conference enables the sharing of knowledge, experiences, ideas, and information, and bolsters your professional scholarship portfolio. Submit a proposal to share your strategies and solutions.

All submissions must be submitted online no later than 11:59 PM (PST) on Thursday, January 16, 2020.

We recommend that you prepare your submission in Microsoft Word and then paste each component into the corresponding online section. A session submission is considered a commitment to attend the meeting and to present at the session, if accepted. Note that presenters are responsible for the costs associated with their travel and meeting registration. Submission decisions will be sent to the submitter in February 2020.

Submitters are strongly encouraged to read the instruction guide before logging in to submit a proposal.
