Women in Medicine

The number of women in medicine is steadily rising and this year, for the first time ever, more women than men enrolled in medical school. MSDC's Women in Medicine Section is physician-led and is dedicated to address the needs of women in medicine. The Section is open to women and men.

Purpose: to increase the number and influence of women physicians in leadership roles both within the greater District of Columbia medical community and MSDC; provide a networking and mentoring forum for women physicians; and discuss issues important to women physicians, i.e. women’s health.

Co-chairs: Maria Aramburu, MD, and Anjali Malik, MD

Programs and Activities:
In 2019, the Section hosted a Distillery Tour and Tasting on National Women Physicians Day and a workshop on work-life boundaries.  2020 has featured more innovative programming, including online events focused on imposter syndrome and the impact of COVID-19 on women in academic medicine.
