Women in Surgery
The myth that general surgery is not a friendly career choice for women is just that: pure myth! Vanderbilt has been proud to graduate many women into the field of general surgery in the past few years (see recent alumni). Below are some further readings/resources for women interested in this field. In addition, if you would find it helpful to meet with some of our Vanderbilt women surgeons or surgical residents, please contact the GSIG leadership who can help to facilitate this for you.
