Critical Mass: With the Stakes High, Women May Assume Crucial Role in Surgery’s Future By Christina Frangou
Nearly 7,500 women graduated from medical school in 2008. Among them could be the surgical leaders of tomorrow. To make this a reality, it will take the concerted efforts of surgeons, industry, educators and students alike. The role of mentors and professional groups to provide guidance and support has never been more critical. As the march toward critical mass of women in surgery continues, there are numerous opportunities to inspire a new generation of surgeons- one that holds the power to provide solutions to the many challenges currently facing the profession.
