Glasgow-Rubin Citation for Academic Achievement

AMWA will award the Glasgow-Rubin Citation for Academic Achievement to women who graduate in the top ten percent of their medical school graduating classes. AMWA will also award a separate Certificate of Commendation for any woman who graduates first in her medical school class.

Many medical schools participate in the program with AMWA and present these certificates to women of achievement at their graduation ceremonies. AMWA receives the names of these admirable students from the administrations of participating medical schools. The awardees are at the discretion of the schools.

To participate, medical school administrators can contact AMWA Headquarters via email at
