Challenges training women in neurology
Rouse S, Raedy A, Khan F. Challenges Training Women in Neurology. Neurol Clin. 2023;41(2):425-431. doi:10.1016/j.ncl.2022.12.003
The challenges that current women neurologists in training face remain similar to a certain extent to those experienced by their women neurologists' mentors. The key challenge that often coincides with residency or fellowship is childbearing. This has the potential to prolong training time and delaying graduation. Women neurologists in training face additional challenges of juggling between family responsibilities--as caregivers--and professional roles.
