Welcome to the Association of Women Surgeons (AWS)

AWS is committed to supporting women surgeons through all stages of their career – from medical school through retirement. As a group, we address unique challenges that women surgeons face such as: 1) lack of representation, 2) the expectations of balancing a family with your career, and 3) pay equity issues. As the number of women surgeons increases over the years, we aim to create a space conducive to learning, growth, and empowerment for future surgeons of all gender identities to continue working towards a more diverse and equitable surgical community.
