Question special

Hello, a big thank you to all of our expert panelists for taking the time out of their surely busy schedules to share their wisdom and experience!

As more and more women enter and graduate from medical school, we see ourselves pursuing fields that were traditionally "male-dominated." My question centers around finding and fostering meaningful mentorship that accounts for the unique challenges a young female physician pursuing academic practice will face. How is this best achieved in departments that are still largely comprised of male colleagues and/or leadership?
