Podcast Episode 46 – What does the future look like for women in medicine? – Dr. Hala Sabry
Episode 46 – In my last conversation with Dr. Hala Sabry, we talked about balancing career and family aspirations. When you’re driven to succeed in all areas of your life, it’s hard to balance those different ambitions. If you didn’t get a chance to listen, make sure to go check that out. In today’s episode, we’re wrapping up the four part series with Dr. Sabry by talking about the future for women in medicine.
The first women to earn a medical degree in the U.S. was Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell in 1849. Today, women make up half of all medical school classes. We’ve made tremendous progress in advancing opportunities for both women and men to excel in the medical field. So, what’s on the horizon? What does the future look like for women in medicine?
Dr. Sabry and lots of amazing women (and men) are working hard to ensure that anyone in the medical field has every opportunity they want. I think the future is incredibly bright, and I’m excited to bring you this final interview in my four part series with Dr. Hala Sabry.
