Women in GI

Established in 2018, the Women in GI is a group of faculty, advanced practice providers and trainees who are interested in fostering an institutional environment that promotes career development, networking and mentorship for women in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. They meet quarterly for causal gatherings to discuss the status of women in their Division and strategies to achieve their core mission and vision. Beyond this, the Women in GI also have a variety of means to stay connected electronically where they recognize each others’ accomplishments, troubleshoot day-to-day challenges, discuss literature on the status of women in medicine, strategize on how to promote their incredible work and much more.
