6th Annual Women Leaders in Medicine Awards and Reception

"Do you know a female physician who is changing the world?
Nomination Submission Deadline: October 1, 2012 (5pm ET)

The Women Leaders in Medicine (WLIM) awards were created by AMSA in 2007 to recognize women physicians and educators who are changing the face of medicine through their lives, their professions, or their teaching. These women deserve recognition for their accomplishments and dedication to fostering tomorrow’s women leaders in medicine.

We are currently accepting nominations for the 2013 WLIM awards. All medical and premedical students are encouraged to fill out the simple online form and tell us about an inspiring woman who has influenced the student's medical career. They could be professors that you’ve had or they could be women who you have never met but have impacted your careers through their amazing work.

The recipients will be invited to attend the AMSA Annual Convention in March 2013 to receive their award at a special reception. Many of our past awardees have considered their Women Leaders in Medicine award a truly meaningful honor because it comes directly from the voices of students. At AMSA, we hope to give back some recognition to these amazing women in addition to generating awareness about the importance of fostering leadership in medicine that promotes healthy change and equality in care and professional opportunity for all physicians-in-training.

This year will be an extra special reception as it will coincide with the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) 62nd General Assembly in Washington DC. In honor of this momentous gathering, special attention will be paid to nominees who have had an impact on the global stage. We hope you will join us at AMSA's Annual Convention for the Annual Women Leaders in Medicine reception as we announce this year’s recipients!"
