Women in Academic Medicine

Print Email

Women doctors who work for Universities face career barriers that have been clearly identified for the past decade.

MWF Campaigns – Women in Academic Medicine

The MWF has worked to bring these issues to government through the Women's National Commission and the British Medical Association. For example, it has worked with Universities to bring examples of good practice to a wide audience; it has members who achieve part time placement for academic trainees at Deaneries. However its work in this area needs further development because there are still medical schools without a clinical female professor, there are few part time posts and women's salaries lag behind those of men with comparable experience.

The MWF sends representatives to the BMA Medical Academic Staff Committee. MWF is keen to maintain the momentum it has achieved and encourages academic women to be mentored. If you wish to be involved in these activities please contact the central office.
