The largest networking event of the year is the AMWA annual meeting which takes place in different locations across the United States of America. The annual meeting is the leading strategic career and personal development conference for women physicians, medical students and residents. Session topics range from mentoring and breaking the glass ceiling to issues in global women's health such as stroke risk, cardiovascular disease, the human papilloma virus, and advances in imaging. AMWA invites women in medicine to attend this meeting and learn from pre-eminent women physician leaders of today and tomorrow.
AMWA also enables members to connect nationally through our bed and breakfast program. Are you traveling and need a place to stay or want to save some money? Locate an AMWA member in our bed and breakfast program and save tons of money during your travels. This is especially helpful for residency interviews.
Become an AMWA member and you are automatically a member of an international network of women physicians called the Medical Women's International Association (MWIA). The MWIA is an international non-governmental organziation (NGO) representing women doctors from all five continents. The association was founded in 1919 as an extension of AMWA's success on the national level. Once AMWA demonstrated the power of a collective group of women physicians acting nationally they decided to expand internationally. The MIWA held their triennial meeting in conjunction with AMWA's 97th annual meeting this year in Miami. The next MWIA meeting will be in Hong Kong.
AMWA also provides international opportunities for women in medicine through the American Women's Hospital Service and the Anne C. Carter Global Health Fellowship.
