Strategic Partner

Women in Medicine in Ireland Network: WiMIN

The aim of the network is to bring together women from all stages of their medical career, in all specialities and grades, to share their experiences and to learn from each other.

There are some aspects of a career in medicine that are experienced differently by women than by men. Women continue to be under-represented in certain specialities and in the higher ranks of academic and clinical medicine. We aim to look at the reasons why this situation might be persisting, despite such a huge increase in the number of women entering medical careers. We hope to advocate and support all women in medicine to help them to achieve their career goals, and to promote leadership and personal fulfilment.

WIMIN is a non-profit membership organisation, which will be overseen by a committee elected annually.
