Women in Medicine
The number of women in medicine is steadily rising and in 2019, more women than men enrolled in medical school. MSDC's Women in Medicine Section is physician-led and is dedicated to addressing the needs of women in medicine. The Section is open to all members.
Programs and Activities: Since its inception, the Women in Medicine Section has hosted a wide range of in-person and virtual events to further its cause. Highlights of the section's innovative programming include but are not limited to a workshop on work-life boundaries, imposter syndrome and the impact of COVID-19 on women in academic medicine, and a tour of a woman-owned distillery.
