We are medical women FOR medical women

We are medical students, doctors-in-training, GPs and specialists working in hospitals, private practice and in administration.

We have members on multiple national women’s lobby groups, particularly in relationship to women’s health, and we have networks across the world.


We applaud these developments that promote gender equity!
