Women in Medicine

Celebrate Women in Medicine Month in September

Each September, the AMA-WPS honors physician mentors who have offered their time, wisdom and support.

This year's theme "Empowering Leaders to Improve the Health of Women," reaffirmed our commitment to increasing the influence of women physicians and advocating for women's health issues. Download a free flier to commemorate Women in Medicine Month.

If you did something special to celebrate this observance, please email the AMA-Women Physicians Section (WPS) at wps@ama-assn.org.
