Celebrating Canadian Women Physicians’ Day!
March 11, 2023 marks the third annual Canadian Women Physicians’ Day. We celebrate and honour female physicians and their significant achievements in medicine and as leaders and mentors.
More than 40% of physicians in Canada are women. At BC Cancer, we are fortunate to have an incredible number of accomplished female medical staff. They are changing the oncology landscape through their involvement in exceptional patient care and are leading local, provincial, national and international initiatives. We reached out to some of BC Cancer’s female medical staff leaders and many shared insights with us, including their hope for the next generation of women physicians, who most influenced them, and lessons they have learned over the years.
