Association of Women Surgeons


The Association of Women Surgeons is a national organization committed to empowering female surgeons at every stage of their careers. The Baylor College of Medicine chapter of AWS provides resources to support, educate, and inspire female medical students interested in pursuing a career in surgery. Our organization works closely with Baylor residents and attending physicians, providing unique networking and mentorship opportunities, and serves as a forum for open discussion on topics related to professional development and challenges unique to women in surgery.
