Last year, the AWS National Medical Student Committee had one of the most productive years in its history. We added several new AWS Medical Student Chapters and currently work with student leaders at over 70 medical schools across the nation and world. We also started an AWS Instagram account,  which gained nearly 8000 followers. For this upcoming year, we are excited to continue growing our AWS Medical Student Chapter network and pursue new initiatives to fulfill the AWS mission of Engage, Empower, Excel.

 

 

This year, the committee will be focusing on the following:

  1. Expanding AWS medical student chapters
  2. Increasing membership opportunities and involvement of subspecialties
  3. Continued development of mentorship
  4. Additional focus on research and chapter resources

We have multiple positions available on the National Medical Student Committee. Irrespective of one's title, we all work together to bring these goals to fruition. Committee responsibilities will include meeting approximately 8-10 times per year via 60 minute conference calls and leading projects independently or in collaboration with other committee members. The upcoming term will begin July 1, 2018 and will end July 1, 2019. Medical students of all years are eligible to apply. Current AWS Executive Medical Student Committee members must complete this application in order to reapply for an additional term.

If you are interested in serving on the committee, please complete the application by June 17. Phone interviews will occur the following week and a half, with notifications of acceptance by June 30. Our first call will happen during the first half of July. Please feel free to contact info@womensurgeons.org with any questions. We look forward to receiving your application!
