Do You Inspire Confidence at Your Hospital? [SlideShare]

One of the biggest challenges women face in medicine is being taken seriously. Fair or not, we have to work harder than our male colleagues to show patients, nurses, and consultants that we know what we’re talking about.

Ren Vitkovitsky, MD, and Gurvinder Kaur, MD, are two women who have been there. They’ve heard the same advice you probably have about fitting in, standing up to nurses, and acting like one of the boys.

And you know what? They didn’t listen.

In today’s SlideShare, these experienced physician leaders offer practical tips on communicating confidently and assertively … without losing yourself in the process.

The following is adapted from a presentation at CEP America’s Women in Medicine Forum.
