Marcus Hwang and his three guests have an important conversation about the challenges women face when entering OMS. They dissect the question on why there are so few women in OMS, discuss various factors that deter women from applying into the surgical specialty, and methods to bring more awareness to this issue. The 2021 Women in OMFS Symposium hosted by the University of Michigan is on March 5th and 6th, 2021. Head over to register and join in on the conversation.
