GWIM strives to recognize faculty who are devoted to the ideals of academic medicine. To this end, we hold the GWIM Annual Awards Reception, which honors recently appointed, promoted and tenured women faculty, as well as two named awards and an achievement award.
The John Eisenberg Career Development Award was established in 2002 and is given annually to four women faculty who are selected to attend the Association of American Medical College’s Women Faculty Professional Development Seminar. This is a competitive selection process in which women who show the most potential for leadership within GUMC are selected to attend.
The Estelle Ramey Mentorship Award was established in 2000 to honor faculty who have provided outstanding encouragement, support, and mentorship for Georgetown University School of Medicine (GUSOM) or MedStar Georgetown University Hospital (MGUH) women faculty to reach their maximum professional potential. GUSOM or MGUH women faculty nominate and vote for the Ramey Mentorship Award candidates. Both male and female faculty are eligible to win this award.
Eligibility for Ramey Award Nominees: Male or Female faculty member with an appointment at GUSOM or MGUH.

The inaugural School of Nursing & Health Studies (SNHS) Mentorship Award for Women in Health Studies will be presented in 2017.

This award will be given to a female faculty member within GUMC/GUH who has demonstrated outstanding achievement through her research, education or service, who is recognized at a national or international level, and who has also contributed to the Georgetown community. Each year, this award will serve to highlight the accomplishments of GUMC/GUH women faculty.
