UPDATE: The Survey will close 30 April. With over 1,400 responses to date, please ensure you have your say.
The Medical Women’s International Association (MWIA) survey of COVID-19 experiences of women doctors as healthcare providers is in progress now.
The AFMW kindly request that ALL Australian medical women please complete this online survey. Responses are anonymous and not traceable and it’s so important to have a range of countries represented.
We need broad support from the Australian Medical Women community to optimise data collected and relevancy of the findings.
Please share on your Socials, websites, with medical women colleagues and associates.
