Episode 109: Empowering Women in Medicine with Dr. Shikha Jain

Many women in medicine miscategorize their struggles to advance. They believe it’s their fault–if only they were smarter or worked harder, they would have reached full professor or a leadership position by now. Dr. Shikha Jain realized she was facing some system issues that were holding her back. She now advocates for greater awareness of gender inequity in medicine, mentors others, and helps highlight solutions. Join our conversation to learn more about the challenges–and potential ways forward. 

Dr. Shikha Jain is an oncologist and an associate professor of oncology at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Shikha is also the founder of the Women in Medicine Summit and the Women in Medicine nonprofit, which seek to advance women at all stages in the medical profession. She is a nationally renowned speaker and writes for several national publications, including USA Today, Scientific American, US News, and Physician’s Weekly.
