Association of Women Surgeons (AWS)


Our Mission:

Making the decision to go into surgery is a difficult one and the Association of Women Surgeons aims to provide adequate resources, support and mentorship to assist medical students interested in a surgical career. The goal of AWS is to enable and empower women interested in surgery to realize their personal and professional goals. AWS sets the stage for a successful career supplying tools and information to faculty, counselors, and students. Through the AWS Chapter, students find a strong community for sharing experiences, learning best practices and developing leadership skills.
