Women Physicians Day: Recognizing Women in EM Leadership
Now more than ever, Emergency Medicine is proud to have an ever-growing number of women in leadership positions in health care and the specialty. This representation provides important perspectives to Emergency Medicine. A diversity of ideas leads to better-informed decision making, and a diversity of physicians allows us to better serve the communities in which we work.
This year marks a momentous milestone for Emergency Medicine when most major organizations that serve the specialty’s community are led by women.
On this Women Physicians Day, we recognize not only the many current leaders in the field, but all those who preceded us, who led the way, who provided us guidance. We will endeavor to follow their footsteps, encourage and mentor another generation of women physicians to enter Emergency Medicine, and contribute to the advancement of the specialty.
