The ratio of male to female consultant surgeons in the UK is approximately 8:1 and it’s time for change! Women in Surgery (WinS) is a national initiative dedicated to encouraging, enabling and inspiring women to fulfil their surgical career ambitions.
This year our annual Women in Surgery Conference will be held in March 2023. We will be inviting female surgeons from a diverse range of backgrounds to give a series of talks on their journeys, experiences and challenges they’ve faced in the working environment as well as ways to overcome them. There will also be a Q&A session where you can feel free to ask anything and everything you’d like! It is also a great opportunity to network and explore different surgical specialties.
