Women in Medical Sciences at UVA is an organization made up of graduate students and postdocs who support and promote the advancement of women in medical sciences. We sponsor events that help everyone (including men!) become better people and scientists, but we also provide a safe space to talk about women's issues in our field.



We are always excited to have new members, so please reach out to us if you are interested in being a part of WIMS.
