The Experiences of Women in Medicine
Women constitute half of medical school graduates; however, career trajectories can differ from their male colleagues. 13% of deans are women, and 40% of women reduce hours or leave medicine within 6 years of residency. Qualitative studies exploring perspectives of women in medicine are necessary as we envision what the working world should be post-Covid. The purpose of this study is to examine experiences of women in medicine across different fields, tracks, career choices, and community settings through an intersectional lens. I hope that these experiences will collectively constitute a body of research that will inspire mentorship, community, and change.
