The Rhode Island Medical Women's Association is the first and only organization in Rhode Island dedicated to the professional and personal needs of women physicians and their patients. Since its founding by six members in 1981, the membership of the Rhode Island Medical Women's Association has more than 100 female medical students, residents, fellows and attendings. The Rhode Island Medical Women's Association seeks to recognize the special needs of women in medicine and female patients and to help meet the challenges of tomorrow.
The Rhode Island Medical Women's Association was founded by women doctors to help themselves meet the challenge of tomorrow. Today, RIMWA has taken an active role in providing a support network for the professional and personal growth of women doctors in our area. Women physicians comprise 1/2 of the physician population. Together we have, now more than ever, the potential for a great collective spirit, one with prowess-one that really works to help manage our futures in a systematic organized way.
If you are a practicing physician, house officer, or fellow, RIMWA provides you with:
