American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA)

The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) is an organization which functions at the local, national, and international level to advocate for the advancement of women in medicine and for the improvement of women’s health. We achieve this by providing and developing leadership, advocacy, education, expertise, mentoring, and strategic alliances. Some of the activities of the Duke chapter include a mentoring program between medical students and female physicians, a mentoring program between medical students and undergraduate pre-medical students, panel discussions with distinguished female physicians, community service events, and social events.

Our committees include: Executive, Service, National, Undergraduate AMWA, Mentoring, and Speakers.

We are excited for our events planned this year, including dinner talks with esteemed physicians, service events for the Ronald McDonald house, and mentorship mixers with both physicians and undergraduate AMWA members.
