In 2014, two physician organizations, namely, Indian Medical Association of America (IMA) and Virginia Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (VVAPI), joined forces to form the Greater Washington Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (GWAPI). A larger platform to unite the area’s finest Indian American Physicians and help them pursue their aspirations in community affairs through professional and social networking, educational activities, philanthropic activities, etc.
Through GWAPI, we aim to connect not just physicians but Angel investors, established authors, and brilliant students & enhance patient care through teaching and research. As a community driven association, we support local, social service projects championed by our members and provide healthcare, support, and wellness programs to the indigenous communities. With today’s current healthcare climate our GWAPI professionals unitedly strive to advocate to protect the interest of patients and physicians and help train future generations of physician leaders in the process.
We believe that strength lies in unity. Hence, through collaborations with tech companies and universities like Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IITM), we continue to champion our objective to improve quality of healthcare through technology, by undertaking mutually accepted collaborative activities in the areas of our core competence.
