American Medical Women’s Association

AMWA holds 1-2 lunches per month with lectures concerning topics related to several topics supporting the theme of “women and medicine.” These topics are relevant to all future physicians. We not only hold lunches, but also have a successful mentoring program. AMWA also sells IUSOM shirts for school support and “bug/drug” charts for medical microbiology and pharmacology courses as a student study aid. Finally, we have an annual fundraiser for our philanthropy supporting organizations such as Girls Inc.
