Women Medical Students

Female Medical Students

The female medical students comprise approximately 50% of the medical school class. The female students also have the opportunity to obtain a key to the Mary Garret Room. This room has been specifically designated for female medical students, residents, and faculty.

The Johns Hopkins American Medical Women’s Association seeks to empower and advance women in medicine and to ultimately improve women’s health. These goals are achieved by optimizing our educational experience, reaching out to the larger community of women through service, addressing systematic bias and discrimination, highlighting women’s achievements in medicine, and uniting women through fellowship.

  • The American Medical Women's Association is an organization which functions at the local, national, and international level to advance women in medicine and improve women's health.  We achieve this by providing and developing leadership, advocacy, education,  expertise, mentoring, and strategic alliances.

  • Johns Hopkins Women's Leadership Council: The council's mission is to advocate for the professional development and advancement of women faculty in the School of Medicine and to educate the leadership and faculty regarding the critical issues facing women faculty.
