Women in Endocrinology

“Female physicians are increasing in number: women now make up nearly one-half of United States medical school graduates, up from just 7% 50 years ago.”Female Physicians and the Future of Endocrinology

Equality for women in all aspects of society is vital to ensuring human progress and that includes endocrinology. While progress has been made over the past half-century, there is still a long way to go including resolving pay disparities and ensuring representation in leadership.

To do our part in advancing this important issue we would like to highlight two upcoming opportunities to focus on the tremendous impact of women in endocrinology.

Women in Endocrinology Thematic Issue

In March 2019 the Endocrine Society will highlight endocrinology research performed by women with a special online thematic issue of papers, with social media outreach, podcast interviews, and more.

“Female researchers remain a minority...and on average they publish fewer papers than their male counterparts, which can hinder their future career prospects.”Rachel Bernstein

Being published in Endocrine Society thematic issues provides a great opportunity to authors, as our thematic issues reach a global audience of influential researchers and substantially increase the visibility of your work. Keep and eye out for this Issue.

Women in Endocrinology (WE) Annual Meeting
