WOMEN PHYSICIANS LEAD
Today women represent more than 50% of the medical school class, yet only hold 20% of the positions in the C-suite. My own journey with leadership was by trial and error. I wanted to represent the 20% but quickly realized, there was no leadership path to follow or defined curriculum to teach me the skills I needed to adjust quickly to this new role. I struggled to balance work and family, navigate our complex healthcare system, and find my voice in leadership. After 20 years in the healthcare field with leadership roles in academia, public health, the insurance industry, and hospital administration, my mission with this podcast and other services, is to help increase the number of women physicians in leadership roles by equipping them with the personal and professional development skills they need to be successful.
