American Medical Women's Association


The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) is an organization which functions at the local, national, and international level. Our mission is to advance women in medicine and improve women’s health. We achieve this by providing and developing leadership, advocacy, education, expertise, mentoring, and strategic alliances. At Rush, we aide in supporting current female members and their future careers in medicine. We host events like the Vagina Monologues, lunch and learns about different fields of medicine such as dermatology, and documentary screenings around important gender topics such as paid family leave.
