American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) Mentoring is an opportunity offered to members to gain wisdom about being a woman in medicine to ultimately be more successful in their careers. Mentees learn the "unwritten rules" and strategies to become well-prepared to advance in their careers. Mentors are available at every stage of an individual's career, from studying as a medical student, training as a resident and practicing as a physician. Mentoring is accessible through a mobile app that allows for both group and 1:1 mentoring, and it matches mentors and mentees based on areas of interest, skills and experience.
