Changing what’s possible for women in cardiology

The British Cardiovascular Society is committed to increasing the number of women training in cardiology and to support women cardiologists already working within the specialty.

We want to champion changes, address gender inequality in working practice and create a community of female cardiology trainees and consultants across the UK. The aims of the BCS WiC team are to:

Engage - To develop new initiatives to attract female doctors to cardiology in the UK
Collaborate - To work with other cardiology societies to identify and address reasons for gender inequality
Support - To champion changes in working practice which promote equity for male and female cardiologists and trainees
Inform - To provide contemporary educational resources and support re issues relevant to women in cardiology
Network - To create a community of female cardiology trainees/consultants across the UK
