Women Physicians Section 
The Women Physicians Section (WPS) business meeting will feature a presentation from the section’s executive council, “Policy 101.” 

  • Do you have a resolution idea you would like section members to consider at this meeting? Be sure to bring it to the meeting or submit it beforehand.
  • Apply to be a Women Physicians Section leader. Nominations will open during the meeting for two WPS Executive Council positions: American Medical Association associate and alternate associate. To apply for either position, submit your nomination from the floor during the section meeting, or submit a letter of intent and two-page curriculum vitae to Karen Kollar by Feb. 4. The one-year term for these positions begins at the conclusion of TexMed 2022 in April.
