Welcome to the American Medical Women's Association Medical Student Division!

The great thing about AMWA is it puts you in touch with a network of other medical students who are interested in things like similar research or a similar women's health issue and a network of physicians... our members are exceptionally eager to work together and collaborate.

Adrienne Clark, M.D.

I first joined AMWA as a medical student because I wanted to learn about more ways to advance my career- when I joined I learned that mentorship was more than just advice. Mentors thought of me for open positions and helped me find a job. This was instrumental in advancing my career.

Ryan Smith, M.D

Through AMWA I traveled to Uganda to work in a public health care clinic as well as visiting schools for malaria education.... It was one of the most rewarding and incredible experiences of my life and that wouldn't have been possible unless I had joined AMWA and become an Anne C. Carter Global Health Fellow.
