AMWA Addresses Physician Fertility and Hosts a Physician Fertility Summit

Date: June 12, 2021
Time: 1:00 – 4:30 pm EST

Studies in the U.S. indicate that as many as 1 in 4 women physicians will experience infertility, a higher incidence than in the general population which estimates about 1 in 10 women. In 2019, a call to action paper was published. This publication motivated AMWA’s interest and work in this area. They formed a committee on Physician Infertility which recruited over 150 members. We are now hosting the first ever Physician Fertility Summit in the U.S.

If this is an area of interest for your association, AMWA welcomes you to attend the Summit and to learn from our experts. We are also happy to share with you information to set up your own Summit.

Here is information about the Summit:

MWIA members can get the AMWA member discount with this code: MWIA (regular) or MWIAtrainee (trainee).
