The Medical Women’s Federation (MWF) is delighted to announce the launch of Honorary Membership to recognise doctors who have demonstrated a unique ability to transfer the MWF vision into living action.

This new development is in line with our President’s mission to bring the vision for MWF into the more modern and inclusive medical world we now live in.

Commenting on the launch of the Honorary Membership, MWF President Dr Henrietta Bowden-Jones said:

“For the first time in our 102-year history, the Medical Women’s Federation is proud to launch this initiative to recognise the important service of those who are working to transfer the MWF vision into action in the medical profession.”

Honorary Members may be nominated by any member of the MWF and shall be elected by Council. The award will honour the positive impact of both male and female doctors who actively promote the training and development of women doctors in the medical profession. The nominee’s curriculum vitae will serve as supporting evidence. Honorary Members are not required to pay an annual membership fee and are not entitled to vote or hold office.
