The Australian Federation of Medical Women (AFMW) offers our members, colleagues and the community access to the collective knowledge and experiences of medical women. AFMW seeks to ensure equity and equality for women doctors to achieve their potential throughout all stages of their professional and personal lives. AFMW is a not for profit, politically neutral, non sectarian, non government organisation that seeks to improve the health of all Australians, especially the health of women and children.
AFMW membership is automatic for doctors who are members of their affiliated state medical women’s society; medical women can join AFMW directly where there is no active local state body. Full membership is open to registered female medical practitioners of Australia. Associate membership includes non-registered female medical practitioners and medical students. Membership of AFMW confers automatic membership of the Medical Women’s International Association.
