Deadline for award nominations and original abstracts is June 20

Attention all women in medicine! Get ready for the Women in Medicine Summit: An Evolution of Empowerment, coming September 20-21 to Chicago. CME offered.

The focus of this ISMS-endorsed summit is to identify barriers women physicians face in the medical field and create action plans that can be executed at both the local and national level.

Barriers have existed for female physicians since the first woman was accepted into medical school. In 2016, nearly 46 percent of medical school graduates were women, yet women physicians remain underrepresented in leadership roles, both in and out of academia.

The two-day summit is a unification of women physicians, with the common goal of finding and implementing solutions to gender inequity.
