AFMW extends hearty congratulations to Dr Ashna Basu for being the recipient of the AMA Women’s Health Award at this year’s AMA National Conference in Sydney.

AMA Women’s Health Award

A Sydney psychiatry trainee doctor, who helps patients ‘feel more like themselves’ during health crises, has won the AMA’s 2022 Women’s Health Award. Dr Ashna Basu received the award from outgoing AMA President Dr Omar Khorshid, for her passion and dedication to gender equity, mental health, and the social determinants of health.

“I can hardly believe it’s real, but on Friday night, at the Australian Medical Association’s National Conference in Sydney, I was awarded the 2022 Women’s Health Award. It’s a privilege to work towards transforming medicine into a more inclusive space for all our patients and staff. I’m indebted to my loved ones and colleagues for their unwavering support, and of course the AMA community – of which I have now been a part for 10 years!
Dr Ashna Basu
