About this Group
The American Medical Women’s Association is an organization that functions at the local, national, and international levels to advance women in medicine and improve women’s health. We achieve this by providing and developing leadership, advocacy, education, expertise, mentoring, and strategic alliances. AMWA at UCLA DGSOM aims to promote women’s health and help advance women in medicine in our medical school community. We strive for this through events and talks featuring prominent female physicians addressing various issues in women’s health, mentorship with undergraduate AMWA members, mentorship with residents and attending physicians, and volunteering opportunities for members. We host Women’s Health Week every year in the early spring to enhance awareness and knowledge about women’s health.
