Welcome residents! Start your career right. Join your colleagues around the world and take advantage of the many resources and tools AWS has to offer.

New residents

For residents:  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.

Resident membership is open to surgical interns, residents or fellows in training. Residents may vote and hold office.
