AMWA at the University of Michigan is an organization comprised of women and men that seeks to create a diverse community dedicated to women in medicine—both as health care providers and health care recipients—through education, leadership, and advocacy.
AMWA is responsible for monthly lunch talks on topics relevant to women in medicine, a faculty mentorship program for medical students, a mentorship program for undergraduates seeking careers in health care, a book club, an annual Charity Bash as well as numerous community service events throughout the year, including Women's Health and Fitness Day, and health education workshops at the Home of New Vision. We actively advocate for women in medical school education, admissions and the curriculum. On a more fun note, we have great social events. There is plenty of opportunity for M1 involvement on our board, and we are always open to new ideas.
