Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine® Academic Sustaining Memberships

Academic Sustaining Members enable ELAM to provide continuing support for ELAM alumnae, who in turn support your institution's emerging women leaders through community building, continuing education and professional development.

Benefits of Academic Sustaining Membership

An annual membership fee of $3,500 makes you a Sustaining Member, with the following benefits:

  • Recognition of your institution on ELAM's website and in the syllabus and other public acknowledgment materials, including at annual events of the Association of American Medical Colleges, American Dental Education Association and (future) Association of Schools of Public Health.
  • Recruitment assistance in the form of senior-level position openings to our biweekly e-newsletter, the ELAM Edge, for free – a value of $500 per posting. The ELAM Edge is circulated to our cadre of alumnae and fellows at academic health centers across the U.S. and Canada, and archived on our website for eight weeks. As a further benefit, ELAM can prepare customized resource lists of alumnae for your consideration as potential candidates and sources of others' names for your senior-level openings. This service, a value of $1,000 per list, is also free for Sustaining Members. Visit our career services page for more information.
  • Open invitations to ELAM special events, such as our annual Leaders Forum.
  • Resources upon request, such as curriculum-related materials, the latest reference articles on leadership, finance, strategic planning, cultural competency and other ELAM curricular areas, ELAM research updates, and executive coach information.
