Women in Cardiology
Mayo Clinic understands the value that diverse perspectives and backgrounds contribute to the clinical and academic environment. In keeping with this philosophy, fellows in the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine have the opportunity to learn from a number of incredibly accomplished women.
In total, 28 of our 138 faculty in the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine on the Rochester campus are women (19% are female; more than 30% have achieved the academic rank of full professor).
Further, the number of women and underrepresented minorities in our training program consistently exceeds national averages.
Our department also supports the Mayo Clinic Women in Cardiology (WIC) group, which meets quarterly and is comprised of female staff cardiologists and cardiology fellows. The goal of WIC is to promote the personal and professional growth and development of female cardiology fellows and junior staff through mentoring and networking.
A number of other resources at Mayo Clinic focus on the career development and support of female physicians. These include the Mayo Fellow Association groups, Women in Medicine, and Dr. Moms in Training.
Mayo Clinic cardiology fellows are also involved in national organizations supporting women in cardiology. Additionally, the Mayo Fellows Association has resources to aid in career development and networking of all trainees.
