Special Events

The Office of Faculty Affairs (OFA) coordinates a series of events geared towards recognizing and promoting women faculty in Health Sciences. In collaboration with the Women in Health Sciences (WIHS) committee, OFA organizes several events that focus on women leadership and other topics related to women professional development. Each event provides an opportunity to network with colleagues and to learn about their research and clinical interests and to interact with the Health Sciences leadership and invited speakers. 

​​Annual Celebration for UC San Diego Health Sciences New Women Faculty

Held each spring, this reception honors new UC San Diego Health Sciences women faculty and is an opportunity to learn about colleagues' research, clinical interests, and provides an opportunity for professional networking with Health Sciences leadership and other women faculty outside divisions and departments. 

Annual Spring and Fall Women in Health Science Committee Events

The Women in Health Sciences (WIHS) Committee coordinates two annual receptions, one in the fall and one in the spring each academic year.  Each reception includes networking opportunities and an invited special guest speaker to discuss leadership, professional development and other important topics. The fall session targets Health Sciences faculty while the spring session targets all women in Health Sciences including residents, clinical fellows, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students.
