AMWA Invests in You with Quality Mentorship
The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) recognizes the importance and value of learning from women in medicine who have walked that road already. No need to learn the hard way when AMWA members are ready and willing to offer guidance, insights, and information to help smooth your way forward as you progress through each stage of your medical career.
We are lucky that many AMWA members want to mentor so we have invested in a one-stop, comprehensive Mentor Matching Platform to make the first step—connecting mentors with mentees—easy. Please take full advantage of this invaluable membership benefit.
Learn from the Women Who Are Blazing the Trail
Effective mentorship is likely one of the most important determinants of career success. AMWA realizes that preparing women in medicine to pursue satisfying, rewarding careers requires communication of “unwritten rules” and “tricks of the trade” to advance. As a member of AMWA, you have access to an extensive network of women physicians and medical students ready to support you.
Interested in Getting Paired up with a Mentor or Mentee?
AMWA focuses on effective mentor-mentee interactions based on support, challenge, and a vision of the mentee’s future career. AMWA mentors encourage mentees to think strategically about a career in medicine and to embrace the necessary resources needed at different stages of your career.
