AMWA Invests in You with Quality Mentorship
The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) recognizes the importance and value of learning from women physicians who have walked that road already. There’s no reason that you should learn the hard way when AMWA members are ready and willing to offer guidance, insights, and support to help smooth your way forward as you progress at each stage of your medical career. Naturally, the first step—connecting with a mentor—can be the hardest step so AMWA has invested in a mentoring match platform to facilitate this progress. Please take full advantage of this membership benefit.
Learn from the Women who are Blazing the Trails Before You.
Effective mentorship is likely one of the most important determinants of career success. AMWA realizes training women physician leaders requires communication of “unwritten rules” of successful career advancement. As a member of AMWA you have access to an extensive network of women physicians willing to offer more than career advice. Your AMWA relationships will lead to career advancement opportunities including public speaking engagements, author opportunities, residency positions and job opportunities.
Interested in Getting Paired up with a Mentor or Mentee?
AMWA focuses on effective mentor-mentee interactions balancing three key elements: support, challenge, and a vision of the mentee’s future career. From the outset of their education, mentees are encouraged to look for opportunities to expand their network of colleagues and to acquire a multitude of individuals whom they admire and respect. AMWA mentors encourage mentees to think strategically about their careers and resources necessary for different purposes at different stages of their career development. Women faculty and students are brought together in their local medical communities. Young AMWA leaders are working with AMWA physicians in 125 academic medical centers across the U.S. AMWA further maintains its commitment to mentoring the next generation of women leaders through webinars on career development, a networking alliance of women physician leaders, media training, and the gender equity task force that advocates for equal pay, transparency of pay scale, more women in positions of leadership and elimination of gender stereotyping and harassment.
