September is Celebrate Women in Medicine Month

WISCONSIN (WKBT) — Male doctors once dominated the workforce, but today, nearly half of medical students are women.

Medicine is in for a more equal future and women physicians at Mayo Clinic Health System are celebrating ‘Celebrate Women in Medicine Month’ by appreciating the female students that are the future of medicine.

“I get to watch my new interns come in and its wonderful to have them step into their roles and just be a guide for them too and let them know that, you know this is a challenging profession,” said third-year Resident at Mayo Clinic Dr. Nandita Ganne.

2019 was the first year that the majority of medical students were women.

As students graduate, the number of women in the industry is expected to grow.
