American Medical Women's Association (AMWA)

The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) is a national organization that also functions at the local level to advance women in medicine and improve women’s health. The RVU branch of AMWA is designed to foster female students as leaders in medicine by providing resources to female students, access to networking and mentoring opportunities, and connecting female students with national AMWA initiatives and leadership. Additionally, the AMWA Club seeks to raise awareness of gender equity through outreach and recruitment, by promoting the increased study of women’s health issues, and through funding and education initiatives.
