Celebrating Women in Medicine Month


AMA's Women in Medicine (WIM) Month

"Celebrating Our Legacy, Embracing Our Future"

Each September, the American Medical Association recognizes the influence and contributions of women in medicine with their ‘Women in Medicine Month’ campaign. In celebration, WAM will shine the spotlight on some of the extraordinary female researchers and physicians whose work and leadership have inspired many here at the University of Arizona.

The Women in Academic Medicine interest group is proud to feature their contributions to our community this month.

The best piece of advice you've ever received? 
Don't confuse urgent with important. The "important: not urgent" category of work contains most of your career development - make time for it.
