Hoffman, an associate professor of family and community medicine at the MU School of Medicine, is one of only 54 women from across North America to be accepted into the program this year. She also serves as the president-elect of the Society of Directors of Research in Medical Education, an organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of education in medical schools.

“Acceptance into the ELAM program is very competitive, so this recognition speaks volumes of Dr. Hoffman’s accomplishments as a leader in medical education,” said Les Hall, MD, interim dean of the MU School of Medicine.

Upon completion of the one-year ELAM program fellowship, Hoffman will join a community of accomplished women in a variety of leadership positions including department chairs, research center directors, deans, college presidents, and chief executives in health care and accrediting organizations.

Hoffman earned a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree in radiologic sciences, a Master of Arts degree in higher and adult education, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in educational leadership and policy analysis from the University of Missouri.
