Please join us for our Physician Fertility Summit on June 12, 2021 from 1 to 4:30pm EST to address the fact that as many as 1 in 4 women physicians will experience infertility. This is such an important topic to discuss as we advance in our medical careers. Together, let's convene with experts and national stakeholders, as well as learn more about taking control over our own journeys — so we can have families if and when we choose.

Armenian Heritage Month & Genocide Remembrance
In honor of Armenian Heritage Month, AMWA highlighted incredible female Armenian physicians last month, who shared inspiring information about their journeys and experiences in medicine with us.

Brief Honoring of the Armenian Genocide:
The American Medical Women’s Association would like to take this opportunity to remember and honor the 1.5 million Armenian lives lost at the hands of the Ottoman Empire in 1915. 

During that time, women physicians of the American Women’s Hospital Service (a program of AMWA), including Dr. Mabel Elliott, provided humanitarian relief and medical care to displaced and orphaned Armenians. On behalf of the premedical division, AMWA is remembering and honoring those who lost their lives and standing in support with our Armenian members and Armenians all around the world.

How to Make Your Application Stand Out
If you are applying to medical school in 2021, the time to start working on your applications is NOW.

The good news is that our partner, BeMo Academic Consulting, is holding a free training presentation to help you make your application stand out. (limited spots available)

The common mistake most applicants who get rejected make is that they
start working on their applications way too late and when they do, they
have no STRATEGY on how to stand out.

Secure your spot now before we reach full capacity.

And remember as an AMWA member, you have access to numerous BeMo resources via your BeMo members area and you’ll receive up to $900 discount on all their services! Simply email our BeMo club coordinator at for details!
