For Practicing Surgeons
AWS provides its members a unique community of mentoring, education, and networking for personal and professional growth – all by women surgeons, for women surgeons. AWS also promotes leadership opportunities and celebrates the achievements of women surgeons worldwide.
AWS provides residents access to their peers, women surgeons and potential mentors who can guide them through the personal and professional transitions of their careers. Topics addressed through AWS by both residents and practicing surgeons include wellness during residency and pregnancy, targeting and tracking professional goals and career advancement.
AWS sets the stage for a successful career supplying tools and information to faculty, counselors, and students. Through the AWS Student Chapters, students find a strong community for sharing experiences, learning best practices and developing leadership skills.
AWS helps organizations – universities and hospitals – support their leadership training, achieve retention goals and advance their women surgeons. Each membership includes a limited number of AWS memberships for the residents enrolled in your residency program, advertising on the website for faculty positions, and all other AWS member benefits.
