Over the next week, we will explore the concept of "culture" in medicine, how women may (or may not) communicate differently than their male colleagues, and propose how women could potentially change the "culture of medicine" for the better.
Thank you again to our panelists; it is our hope that this conversation sparks an exchange of new ideas. We are excited to learn from an accomplished group of panelists who bring a wealth of experience to the conversation!
Today, I would like to start with the following questions: Is there something unique about how women communicate with each other and with their male colleagues? Are such differences a result of gender, or not gender-specific at all but about differences in personality instead?
