American Medical Women's Association at OHSU
AMWA at OHSU
The OHSU branch was revived in 2016 by M.D./Ph.D. students Mollie Marr, Alexandra Pincus, and Kelsey Priest, and M.D. students Jennifer Thompson, Elena Griffin, Annie Buckmaster, Angela Steichen.
We, the OHSU branch of the AMWA, are an inclusive organization that promotes community empowerment, career advancement, education, and social justice.
We achieve this by providing and developing:
- A supportive and diverse community at the institutional, local, and state level
- Opportunities for leadership, mentorship, and professional development
- Education, research, and outreach addressing gender equity and women’s health
- Avenues for advocacy and policy in order to effect long-lasting change
The American Medical Women's Association is an organization that functions at the local, national, and international level to advance women in medicine and improve women's health. We achieve this by providing and developing leadership, advocacy, education, expertise, mentoring, and strategic alliances.
