Association of Women Surgeons Grand Rounds
Every fall, Duke Surgery hosts a Grand Rounds event that focuses on gender inequality in surgery. With guest speakers consisting of national leaders in surgery from different backgrounds, discussions revolve around the challenges women face upon entering the surgical field, including the pay gap, challenges finding mentors, and career advancement. By examining implicit bias and microaggression as they relate to gender roles, the event aims to improve gender inequality within the Department of Surgery and the Duke University Health System.
