From the first woman President of the Royal College of Surgeons (England) to the first woman who takes up the new chair at General Medical Council UK, you’re one of my role models @claremarx!
So proud that we went to the same school @cheltladiescoll and that I’m currently training with Consultant Surgeons who used to be your colleagues/juniors! Incredible woman 👏🏽👏🏽#independentwomencan #ILookLikeASurgeon

I always knew that I wanted to become a doctor when I was a little kid. I would play with the doctor’s kit (including stethoscope and scalpel) when I was a little girl and pretended that my Barbie doll was my patient. Little did I know that I’m now living my dream!
Training to become a Consultant Surgeon is indeed very challenging, physically, mentally and emotionally. The long hours, the on call shifts, weekends and nights, clinics, monitoring your juniors, research and postgraduate exams and degrees, PhD.
The never ending work-based assessments, exams, and so forth. There is no end to gaining knowledge in medicine and surgery, every day is a new learning experience. It challenges your patience and virtue, your ability to work under pressure and stressful environment.

But they all aim to elevate women in medicine. Period.

Here are some of them.

(NB: focusing on folks who have made it their *singular* mission to support women physicians)
