A significant amount of the media around women doctors is around negative aspects such as harassment, fatigue, and the difficulty of achieving a work/life balance. However, at Level, we believe that this narrative misses out entirely on the incredible achievements of women doctors across the country (and the world). To us, part of changing the conversation around gender in medicine is about changing this narrative, and showing young men and women alike that being a woman and a doctor are not just possible, but can form part of an incredibly satisfying career and life. As part of this work, we have begun writing profiles of current doctors who are breaking the gender barriers and succeeding in their chosen careers, and showcasing them here.
If you would like to be profiled, or to profile someone else, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. More coming soon!
