On this weeks episode of feminist friday, I stumbled upon a blog post written by a female physician who shares her insights and advice on what it means to be a woman in medicine. I absolutely loved what she has to say so I thought I would share it with you all for some motivation and encouragement!! "I want to tell women in medicine to throw their hats in the ring, become leaders, and be fearless. Know that not even the sky’s the limit. You are the future of science and medicine. As women, we’re resilient, but we’re also adaptive, we have high emotional intelligence, and we’re able to intuitively decide the best approaches in life.
So, I’m going to tell you all to make sure that you don’t just stay as practicing clinicians, but to get out of your comfort zone and pursue hybrid pathways in policy, law, and government alongside their clinical goal. That’s truly going to help us tease out some of the deficits in healthcare access and delivery. This will not only elevate us to a more intuitive model but we’ll also achieve the true inter-professional synergy that is vital to positive patient outcomes." As a woman, mother, and medical student this resonated with me so much!! I hope this sends bursts of encouragement the same way it did for me. We are a STRONG, growing force to be reckoned with!! Let's show em all who's boss and SLAY the day away! Happy friYAY beautiful med community, I'm back to the books!! 👩🏻⚕️📖🐻💪🏻♥️
