The ABWP began in 1982 when fifty Black Women physicians and medical students met to share their experiences and to discuss career development. The women recognized the need for an organized support for Black women pursuing a profession in medicine. These insightful women created the ABWP with a mission statement. They formed the bylaws and began a great tradition.

The ABWP has more than 600 physicians and physicians in training.on their roster.  We are involved in numerous community services and events that continue the tradition and goals set forth by our original charter members.

The ABWP provides a forum for support, community education, scholarships and social networking for Black Women physicians.
