Feb 7th, students of the Yale medical community had the opportunity to share an informal dinner with Dr. Haffizulla, the American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) National President.  This intimate event provided an informal setting for current Yale and Quinnipiac medical students to pick Dr. Huffizulla’s brain about female leadership in medicine.  Students’ concerns varied from gender discrepancies in pay to opportunities for advancement to balancing family and medicine.  Throughout the discussion, Dr. Haffizulla highlighted the importance of self-advocacy, finding the right fit professionally, and taking active steps to achieve it. Her passion was infectious, and her speech gave Yale’s newly formed AMWA chapter the push it needed to begin in earnest.

Medstro Opportunities
We have a wonderful opportunity for students to be moderators for Medstro (founded by a woman physician) - a great on-line chat community in collaboration with the NEJM featuring great authors and experts.  AMWA is a cosponsor for their women in medicine series.  The time commitment is not much - typically about 2 hours for the duration of the 10 day conversation and about 15 minutes at a time.  It's a great way to make some connections as well and hear/read about important topics in medicine.  Check out the upcoming conversation on women in medicine:
If you are interested, please RSVP here and we will pass on your contact information to Medstro.
