AMWA 108th Annual Meeting — Thriving, Leading, Transforming — to Focus on Evolving Healthcare and the Culture of Medicine

American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) will hold its 108th Annual Meeting in Philadelphia from March 23-26, 2023, in conjunction with the Medical Women’s International Association North American Congress. The meeting theme, Thriving, Leading, Transforming reflects our aspiration for women in medicine and the impact they can have collectively and individually within their communities. Registration for the meeting is open, with early bird pricing available through Saturday, December 31st.

“As addressed in the recently published AMWA-Korn Ferry report, Women in Medicine: Setting the Agenda for Change, the COVID pandemic had an enormous impact for women physicians, setting their progress back in many ways,” said AMWA President, Theresa Rohr-Kirchgraber, MD, who is Professor of Medicine at AU/UGA Medical Partnership. “We believe women physicians can resurge steadily and meaningfully by prioritizing wellness, developing their skills as empathetic leaders, and collaborating to evolve the culture and practice of medicine.”

“At AMWA 2023, we will share strategies for thriving in times of challenge,” said AMWA Program Chair Eleanor Chu, MD, who is Associate Professor of Neuroradiology and Fellowship Program Director at UC Irvine Health. “We will delve deeper into innovation and leadership, spotlighting how both can contribute to individual well-being and drive positive change in our healthcare system, care delivery, and expectations for the way we work.”

“We are delighted to be coming back together in Philadelphia for our first in-person Annual Meeting in four years,” said AMWA Executive Director Eliza Chin, MD, MPH.  “Not only does Philadelphia have a rich heritage as the birthplace of American democracy and medicine, but it is also the home of AMWA’s archives, reflecting our 100+ year legacy. We invite everyone to join us for receptions at two important medical heritage sites, the Legacy Center at Drexel University College of Medicine and the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, home of the Mutter Museum.”
