The need for women to advance into health care leadership positions is urgent and clear. AMWA and Carnegie Mellon University’s Master of Medical Management program has teamed up to help you prepare yourself for leadership at the highest level, whether it’s in hospitals, health systems, universities, insurers, or medical companies. Within five years of graduating from CMU’s MMM program, a majority of our graduates attain the role of CMO, CEO, or another C-level or VP position.

We need to close the role model, mentor, and pay gaps facing women physicians. And that starts at the top.
