Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine® Executive Development Council

ELAM has been providing services — from posting job announcements to preparing customized resource lists — to search firms for more than 10 years. We formed the Executive Development Council to provide benefits and privileges to member organizations and friends.

Why use ELAM to advertise your positions?

  • We don't just post your positions on our website — we circulate them via email to our alumnae community of over 1,200 (and growing!) highly qualified women in senior executive positions throughout the U.S. and Canada.
  • The readership rate of the Edge is consistently 3 to 5% above the industry average.
  • Our rates are lower than many job posting sites.
  • We offer the additional service of putting together resource lists of qualified candidates, all graduates of the ELAM program.
