11th Annual Women Leaders in Medicine Awards

Submit your nominee here.

WLIMThe Women Leaders in Medicine (WLIM) awards were created by AMSA in 2008 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.

Medical and premedical students are encouraged to fill out the online nominations 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.

Many of our past award recipients 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.

Join us at AMSA’s National Convention and Exposition in Washington, DC, March 8-11, 2018,  as we announce the award winner.
