WOMEN IN RHEUMATOLOGY NEWS
Though a short month February commemorates several holidays concerning history, black history, President’s Birthdays, love, and National Women Physicians Day on February 3, 2017.
With this designation female physicians should feel empowered, ready for medicine and able to tackle life and ourselves. Interestingly, great strides have been achieved, but gender discrimination still exists in medicine. Progress will occur with time but how long? Dedicated to Women in Medicine this Newsletter is designed to illustrate a variety of issues we still face during residency, academia, private practice, and at home. Through it all we still need to recognize our fierceness as female physicians.
During residency women find difficulty with networking with their own especially in academia, male- dominate specialties and in the hospital. How do you navigate this maze and remain a great female physician?
Identity crisis abounds for female physicians. What do you call yourself ? Doctor at the hospital and office? Mother of two Mrs? First name with the nurses? See how fellow female physician handles this.
