Group on Women in Medicine and Science (GWIMS)

What is GWIMS?

The UW-Madison 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. Learn more about the dedicated women in science organizing this new SMPH chapter by visiting our Leadership page. Our activities are centered on educating, connecting, and celebrating women in medicine and science at UW-Madison SMPH. The annual UW-Madison SMPH GWIMS Symposium is our signature event. It typically occurs in late fall and is open to the entire SMPH community. Additionally, the Annual GWIMS Awards and monthly Connect & Learn seminars serve to celebrate and connect our membership.

Membership is open to SMPH faculty, and all genders are welcome. Join us!

Mission Statement: The UW-Madison 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.
