The Leaky Pipeline

This is the second episode in our series on women in emergency medicine. In the first episode, My Role in Doctor,  women physicians shared their stories with us and we saw several themes emerge. Gender bias is, unfortunately, alive and well in our specialty. In this episode, we take a deeper dive into the issue with sex and gender expert, Dr. Angela Jarman. 

How do you deal with gender bias as a woman in EM? Tell your story and tag us on social media, @empulsepodcast, or reach out via email, or through our website, Encourage your friends and colleagues to listen and share their stories, too!
