Welcome to the website for the UVA

Women in Internal Medicine Network!

WIMN was founded in 2015 as a Department of Medicine (DOM) initiative to support the professional growth of DOM’s women trainees and faculty.

Led by co-chairs Jeanetta Frye, MD, Anne Tuskey, MD , and Joy Hilton, WIMN aims to:

  • Foster mentoring relationships among DOM faculty, fellows, and residents in Internal Medicine
  • Promote involvement and advancement of women in the Department of Medicine
  • Place an emphasis on the importance of wellness and improved work-life integration
  • Support research on women’s health issues and on gender differences related to healthcare.

WIMN coordinates and sponsors activities and programs that facilitate and promote leadership, career development, professional advancement, community building, and work life integration for women faculty and trainees (fellows and residents). Our mission is to ensure the growing numbers of women in Internal Medicine continue to increase and women continue to succeed in the profession.
