AMWA Mission

Despite the extraordinary progress women have made in medicine and the sciences over the last 150 years, there continues to be a pressing need for female role models and mentors, specialized professional development programs, and increased study of women's health issues. Women want a forum to learn from each other about how to handle multiple roles, a balanced career, and family. AMWA members share the goal of promoting women's health and taking the steps necessary to assure that these issues are on the agenda at all levels.

The BCM Chapter of AMWA seeks to:

  • Bring together women medical students and physicians
  • Promote their education and training
  • Promote education on issues of women's health
  • Encourage women to study and practice medicine, and promote equal opportunities to do so
