In the past, the field of medicine and of surgery was mostly made up of men, but in recent years, these trends have started to change. In recent years, women have a slight majority in medical school classes over men!
Today, there are countless examples of female surgeons doing incredible things in medicine and being trailblazers in their specialties within surgery. If you want to hear interviews with some wonderful women in surgery, follow the WISER podcast at https://wiserpodcast.com/category/podcasts/.
