Women’s Physician Scientist Breakfasts

Mission Statement: To inspire, encourage, and enable women in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD) to achieve their personal and professional goals as developing physician scientists through open discussion of potential career obstacles and interaction with successful female role models.

 

The MSTP Women Physician Scientist Student Association is a female student group that hosts monthly breakfast meetings. Each breakfast meeting is led by two MSTP students and centers on a discussion topic related to professional development, mentoring or leadership. These topics often originate from recent journal articles and sometimes address gender-specific concerns or barriers to success. Female physicians and scientists in the University community also attend meetings, join in the discussions, and share their professional experiences. The participation of these faculty members fosters relationships between students and female role models in the scientific and medical communities.
