About the club

The Canadian Association of Women Clinician Investigator Trainees (CAWCIT) is a peer-led initiative that aims to support and empower women clinician-scientist trainees to achieve their goals and potential as future doctors, scientists and leaders through personal and professional development. Unique challenges persist for women in the physician-scientist career path, including less representation in academic and leadership roles, as well as higher attrition rates. Through diverse events and initiatives, CAWCIT aims to create an inclusive network and space where all women, gender minorities and allies feel empowered to champion equity, challenge all forms of bias and discrimination, and build support networks that carry on throughout medical, research, residency training, and beyond.
