We are very excited to announce an upcoming IWEM workshop on Saturday, Feb 25, 2023, at the Musculoskeletal Institute (MSI) at UConn Health in Farmington, CT. 

At the Inspiring Women in Engineering & Medicine (IWEM) workshop, we are committed to exposing young women to the rewarding fields of Medicine and Engineering.

Our goal is to inspire hope in these young women, by providing an unparalleled experience into these fields. We strive to recruit high school students from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds into our program to equip them with the excitement, knowledge, and mentorship necessary to pursue careers in these fields.

IWEM is a FREE, four-hour, hands-on workshop for high school women who are interested in pursuing careers in Medicine or Engineering.  

We are currently seeking applicants for our UConn Health program. Participants should be students who gender-identify as female or nonbinary in grades 10 and up with an expressed interest in science, medicine and/or engineering. We would appreciate if you could please pass this information along to any high school students you may know.

Applicants should fill out our online application starting Jan 30, 2023 and before the Feb 9, 2023 application deadline. The IWEM workshop has limited capacity, so applicants should not delay.

The IWEM application may be accessed directly using the following link:
