Women in Cancer

About Us

Background

  • In the past few years, the number of women who were accepted into medical training programs across the country has increased steadily.

  • Many women think that choosing an academic career will require sacrifices to their personal life that are not feasible to entertain.

  • Women have a tendency to work industrially independently in hopes that their efforts will be recognized, while men understand the need for networking with professional colleagues to achieve goals.

  • In medicine, there is a lack of training in leadership skills and techniques. Yet as clinicians, we are expected to lead teams of healthcare professionals, students, and are viewed as leaders in general by society. While many leadership courses and seminars are offered through various academic and non-academic organizations, gaining access to these resources is quite difficult and not as obvious.

  • WinC is an online initiative to promote collaboration, mentorship, and leadership training that will capture the gender shift in oncology.
