• Women’s Faculty Association

    Welcome to the Women’s Faculty Association (WFA) of the Department of Pediatrics of the University of Cincinnati. The Women’s Faculty Association is supported by the Schmidlapp Scholars Program.

    The overall goal of the WFA is to promote career development, advancement and recognition of women in the Department of Pediatrics. The WFA also provides an opportunity for women faculty and fellows to meet, network and participate in informal mentoring activities. These opportunities are open to both male and female faculty, as well as fellows, pediatric residents and graduate students.

    For the current business year, the Women’s Faculty Association has several exciting activities planned. We will continue the popular Leadership Book Club and we will be establishing a walking club to encourage informal interaction of WFA members. We will also once again be hosting the WFA Founder’s Dinner celebrating an individual with a profound influence on Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Lastly, we will be providing multiple service opportunities.

    The Women’s Faculty Association offers the Louise Rauh Scholarship to a current fourth-year student. The Louise Rauh Scholarship is awarded based on excellence in academic performance, leadership skills, community service, resourcefulness and financial need.
