AAMC Mailing Lists

stamp on an envelope

AAMC mailing lists are available for sharing valuable information and resources with our member institutions and constituents.


Advocates for women’s advancement and leadership may become members of GWIMS and those members may be either from the faculty or administration at AAMC member medical schools and teaching hospitals. Their portfolio, formal or informal, may include: gender equity, career advancement, women’s recognition, including awards, and women’s recruitment and retention throughout the continuum of academic medicine. The membership includes two categories: Designated Representatives and Additional Members.

Find out more about GWIMS Membership and Resources in the Member Resource .

Designated Representatives

The deans of medical school members and chief executives of Council of Teaching Hospital (COTH) members are invited to designate one individual per organization to serve as the GWIMS Designated Representative. The selected individual advocates for women's advancement in leadership and education, research, clinical practice, and administration, and also serves as the main point of contact for official correspondence from the AAMC. Designated representatives work with other AAMC group representatives and leadership at their organization to inform them of GWIMS activities and discuss potential areas of collaboration to help advance the GWIMS mission. Designated representatives at medical schools are also responsible for completing the AAMC Women in U.S. Academic Medicine and Science Statistics and Benchmarking Survey with their school's Faculty Roster Representative every other year.

Additional Members

Beyond the GWIMS Designated Representatives, additional faculty members or administrators with a sustained interest in the GWIMS agenda and who want to be involved in a concrete way are also welcome to join GWIMS. The deans and CEOs of member organizations can put forth the names of additional members or individuals can self-nominate with proof of dean approval by emailing
