We’re currently in our second year of offering our successful Level Summer Research Fellowships. Each Fellowship looks at a different question concerning issues around gender equity in Australian medicine. Our Research Fellows spend 1-2 months over summer each year compiling Australian-centred research on their questions and clarifying Level’s policy and advocacy stance on these issues.
