Biographical/Historical Note

The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) has been committed to the advancement of women in medicine. In 1915, at a time when women physicians were an under-represented minority and in need of cooperative action by women in medicine, AMWA became the first national organization of women physicians. AMWA organized committees to document for the first time unequal opportunities for women in postgraduate training, hospital internships, academic appointments, scholarships and papers presented at professional meetings. AMWA demonstrated by acting collectively through a national organization, women could increase their effectiveness as lobbyists.
