  • Association of Women Surgeons

    Association of Women Surgeons

    The Association of Women Surgeons (AWS) was founded in 1981 when Patricia Numann, MD, FACS, invited as many female surgeons as she could identify to breakfast at the October meeting of the American College of Surgeons. Sharing many common experiences, interests, and concerns, these women decided to meet annually on an informal basis. For the next few years, the first significant contact that many female residents or newly practicing female surgeons had with more professionally advanced surgical women was through these Wednesday morning breakfasts at the American College of Surgeons’ fall meeting.

    Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence

    Visit Organization[/button] Health disparities-from access to care to health outcomes-affect a growing segment of the U.S. population. While recent reports show some progress in reducing disparities, there is still much work to be done to achieve equity in care. Initiatives designed to reduce disparities and achieve health care equity were a major component of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the American Hospital Association, through its Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence strategic platform, is committed to helping the hospital field improve the care provided to all persons and eliminating disparities in care.

  • Society of Women in Urology

    Society of Women in Urology

    The Society of Women in Urology (SWIU), formerly known just as “Women in Urology,” informally began at the 1980 AUA meeting in San Francisco, when five female urologists met for breakfast to discuss their experiences and frustrations. Such informal meetings continued until 1992, when the group created an executive board and introduced bylaws. SWIU now has more than 650 members, including over 250 board-certified female urologists, as well as female urology residents, fellows, post-residency,  pre-board-certified women. SWIU also has female members who are non-urology MDs and PhDs.
