Women in Medicine

Women in Medicine

 
This was an amazing event and a great way to commemorate International Women’s Day.  It was so inspiring to see women in higher positions in the Medical field: be it as a Consultant, Head Nurse, or Nurse in Charge.  Dr Pooja shared some interesting statistics: 75% of women make up the work force, but less than 1/3 rise to higher positions. It’s very shocking to see that women aren’t always given the recognition they deserve because traditionally, Medicine has always been largely male dominated. So for these four women to break this stereotype, it encourages and opens new doors to aspiring young female Medics.  Medicine is for the strong minded and these have proven that a woman’s mind is just as capable as any other.
