Women in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Symposium

March 8-9, 2019 | Ann Arbor, MI

ABOUT

OVERVIEW

The Women in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Leadership Symposium is a 2-day professional conference in Ann Arbor Michigan, sponsored by the University of Michigan Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. This conference was developed to bring together a panel of distinguished female surgeons from across the country to discuss career development and personal success in our evolving, but still male-dominated profession. As this conference is the first of its kind, we hope to start a conversation about the unique opportunities, issues and challenges that female surgeons encounter throughout their career. We have built in time for panel Q&As as well as a networking reception to provide the space for faculty, residents and students to establish lifelong friendships and mentorships.

TARGET AUDIENCE

We invite all interested Faculty, Fellows, Residents and Dental Students to participate in this conference. Although our target audience is primarily female Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons or future surgeons, the conference is also open to men who wish to learn more about advancing women in our profession.
