Women Advancing & Achieving in Medicine (WAAM)

Women Advancing & Achieving in Medicine (WAAM) is an organization of Baystate Health's women physicians and mid-level providers that was formed in September 2005 with the goals of refining its members' skills in the areas of:

  • leadership
  • mentorship
  • scholarship
  • networking.

WAAM membership has since grown to 900 women providers.
