2023 Women in Medicine

August 23-26, 2023



Women in Medicine 2023 marks the 39th annual retreat and CME conference for lesbian and other sexual minority women physicians and medical students. The yearly conference is a forum for discussion of front-line research on women's health issues, which is inclusive of health issues for those who identify as lesbian, bisexual, or other sexual minority women, as well as health issues of transgender and gender queer persons and persons with intersex traits who align with the term women either in identity or community.  There will be essential networking and mentoring opportunities, with a special focus on the needs of medical students and residents/fellows. We are proud to present a broad range of medical, ethical and social issues relevant to today's world.
