The face of medicine is changing. For the first time last year, more women were admitted to medical school than men. And, the face ofophthalmology is changing. Women now constitute 40-50% of the residents in ophthalmology programs. In fact, in my own program, 6 of the 7 residents in my year were women. However, there were very few women in positions of leadership within the ophthalmology department (actually only 1 that I can think of). As a resident, you’re just trying to make it through the grueling training process.
