Super Women in Medicine

Our Mission

To empower, support, and promote women physicians, and to provide them the skills to be the best they can be, so they will, in-turn, inspire others.

The GBMC Women in Medicine for internal medicine residency program was created in 2017 by Dr. Lisa Greisman with an aim to address unique issues and needs of women physicians and physicians-in-training. In 2020, we re-invigorated the group into the Super Women in Medicine (sWIM).

We hope that through inspirational speakers, workshops, mentorship and networking, women physicians will be emboldened to be the best they can be in their chosen area of medicine. The activities will also foster camaraderie among the trainees and we hope that supporting each other will be the norm and that the women physicians will pave the way for others.

Our goal is to impart knowledge and skills to our trainees that will not only be useful during their residency but that would prepare them to face and overcome personal and professional challenges that they may face, both professionally and personally.

Pauline Daley Richards, MD, FACP

Chairman's Highlight - "News from the Residency Program"

Melvin Blanchard, MD - Chairman of Medicine
Re-invigorated Women in Medicine: The GBMC Women in Medicine for internal medicine residency program, led by Dr. Pauline Daley-Richards, was created in 2017 with an aim to address unique issues and needs of women physicians and physicians-in-training. This is important for many obvious reasons, but particularly because more than 60% of our categorical residents are women. Our mission is: To empower, support, and promote women physicians, and to provide them the skills to be the best they can be, so they will, in-turn, inspire others.

We hope that through inspirational speakers, workshops, mentorship and networking, women physicians will be emboldened to be the best they can be in their chosen area of medicine. The activities will also foster camaraderie among the trainees and we hope that supporting each other will be the norm and that our women physicians will pave the way for others.
