AWS Medical Student Committee!

We invite all current medical students to apply for a position on the Association of Women Surgeons (AWS) National Medical Student Committee! Students who are graduating in 2024 and taking a gap year prior to residency or IMGs taking a mandatory gap year (e.g. required hospital service year) are also eligible to apply! This committee is driven to not only promoting female medical students interested in surgery throughout the world, but it also represents a tight knit and goal-driven group of student leaders who we hope will continue advocating for women throughout their careers! Apply at the link below by March 22.
