Federation of Medical Women of Canada

2023 Educational conference and AGM

September 23 & 24

For many, including female physicians, medical students and resident physicians, it has been a challenging few years navigating a pandemic, health system challenges and our personal lives. This conference will provide the opportunity to get together with colleagues to discuss ongoing challenges, learn how to maintain wellness (where we can) and how to better advocate for women and girls.

The Federation of Medical Women of Canada has a deep history of advocating for the management of women's health issues, both within Canada, but also abroad. As the FMWC approaches their 100th year they are constantly revisiting their strategies to achieve their mission of being a national organization committed to the professional, social and personal advancement of women physicians and to the promotion of the well-being of women both in the medical profession and in society at large.
