The tenth annual Women in Medicine & Science Symposium (WMSS) was held on Wednesday, September 22, 2021.
Our Women in Medicine and Science Symposium highlights the achievements of women faculty and trainees at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

How To Apply to WMSS
The call for abstracts for oral and poster presentations is open to all women faculty and trainees (instructors, assistant professors, associate professors, professors, residents, clinical fellows, research fellows) in a BWH-affiliated department. Authorship should include all project team members. All faculty and trainees are encouraged to attend, whether they make a presentation or not. Since this is not considered a national or regional meeting, previously presented talks are admissible. Furthermore, presenting at this meeting is not a deterrent for future national/regional meetings.
- Prepare your Abstract
All abstracts must adhere to 200 word limit and be a “.doc” file. Basic science research, clinical research, translational research, and clinical innovation project abstracts are welcome. Please structure your abstract with the 4 sub-sections: Background, Methods, Results and Conclusions. Any abstracts not in this format will be returned for editing.
