Women in Medicine Webinar Series Part 3:
Monday, July 12, 2021
5:00 - 6:00 PM

Sponsorship & Writing Letters of Recommendation and Support for Women in Medicine
Tiffany, Leung, MD, FACP

Writing letters of support in academia is a vital skill to sponsor protégés, advance the careers of mentees and colleagues, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in medicine and science in general. Letters are an essential part of communicating the value and qualifications of a physician, and the traits of that individual must be highlighted in a way that focuses on their abilities as a leader, awardee, and deserving candidate – and avoid language about gendered or stereotyped characteristics that can be harmful for their achievement. This session shares evidence of biases in written letters of support and performance evaluations, and engages audience participants to actively reflect on example letters to recognize and potentially mitigate such biases in their own writing.


Dr. Tiffany Leung is an Internal Medicine physician and Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. She previously practiced primary care in the U.S. and has experience with telemedicine practice. She has a special interest in activities and research that promote well-being of physicians and trainees.
