Rhode Island Medical Women's Association

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 now approaches more than 150 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.
