What is GWIMS?
The UW SMPH Group on Women in Medicine & Science (GWIMS) was established in January 2021 as a chapter of the American Association of Medical Colleges national GWIMS organization. Our activities are centered on educating, connecting, and celebrating women in medicine and science at the UW SMPH. The annual UW SMPH GWIMS Symposium is our signature event. It typically occurs in late fall and is open to the entire SMPH community. Additionally, annual GWIMS Awards and monthly Connect & Learn seminars serve to celebrate and connect our membership.
Membership is open to all faculty of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. All genders are welcome. Join us!
Mission Statement: The UW SMPH Group on Women in Medicine and Science advances the full and successful participation and inclusion of women within academic medicine and science by addressing gender equity, recruitment and retention, awards and recognition, and career advancement through education, advocacy, mentoring, and networking.
