Faculty Development Caucus The Women's
Caucus was founded in 1989 as a professional development and mentoring program
to help women advance their career and assume leadership positions. The
co-founders were Debra H. Fiser, MD, who is now the College of Medicine Dean
and Teresita Angtuaco, MD, professor of Radiology. Both are previous
winners of the Outstanding Woman Faculty Award.
development efforts have resulted in an expanding organization that addresses
the needs of all College of Medicine faculty members. We provide
leadership training, mentoring/advising, faculty handbook publications, faculty
development, and networking opportunities. The Caucus Committees, lead
by rotating chairs and co-chairs, are pathways to leadership and provide the
energy and effort behind WFDC activities. If you are interested in
serving on a committee, let us know.
The Caucus Officers are elected every two
years from Executive Committee membership. They lead and guide the
collective work of the Caucus Committees.
The officers attend and advise the WFDC Executive Committee which consists of past presidents and committee
co-chairs. If you want to serve on a committee, please contact one of the
officers or Brenda Burks (526.4685).
