Our mission is to support women through the journey from medical school to becoming specialists, in a supportive and interactive environment.
By empowering and inspiring female doctors, we hope to help them realise their full potential and ultimately enable them to be a driving force for change.

This group is a fantastic idea and exactly what I need right now. I’m soon to go on maternity leave with my second child and I had been feeling really uninspired with my medical career. Having gained my FRACGP prior to my first child coming along I had “leaned out” of a career after his birth and have just been plodding along. Huge thanks to all of you inspiring women in medicine out there for reminding me that being a “good” mother and being ambitious in my career are not mutually exclusive (despite the messages society continues to send us). Seven weeks out from starting maternity leave again & I’m excited about what my future in medicine might look like!
We had a similar group start up in New Zealand back in February (NZ Women in Medicine) – HUGE success on several fronts, not the least of which is fostering better GP-specialist interactions/relationships, sharing of information, and lots of topical discussions – absolutely brilliant!
