The Medical Women’s Federation is a membership organisation which aims to support women throughout their careers; from students where we offer bursaries, grants and prizes, right the way through to retirement, where we ask elder members of the federation to support and mentor the younger members. We aim to lobby the government on behalf of our members regarding current affairs which affect women in medicine.
Our ultimate aim is to see more women in leadership roles within medicine.
