Women In Radiology
As part of our Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s vision to create a culturally diverse, inclusive and welcoming environment, the Women In Radiology group is an initiative to promote a departmental culture supportive of the career advancement of female clinicians. Our purpose is to develop knowledgeable, successful, confident women prepared to achieve career success and assume leadership positions.
Our Female Faculty Development Program has been structured to offer opportunities for development and mentorship and to provide tools and support to our female faculty. The program hosts educational modules, which include topics such as Work Life Balance, Enhancing Your CV, Conflict Management and The Art of Self Promotion. In addition to increasing knowledge, our educational meetings serve as an opportunity for networking among junior and senior faculty members, strengthening intradepartmental mentoring. Learn more about our recent meetings.
Our aim is to eliminate barriers and provide support in order to narrow the gender gap in radiology.
