Carina Seah @CarinaSeah
@womeninmedchat A1: I'm just beginning my career, but participating in research in undergrad made me pursue a master's and influenced my decision to apply MD PhD. Realizing the number of patients I could affect from the bench doing translational research was powerful. #WomenInMedicine

@womeninmedchat A1: I didn't want to go straight to #medschool, so I spent 2 months doing sanitation work in Cambodia and the rest of the year with @CityYearMKE! This solidified my passion for global and public health which has become a huge part of my future goals. #WomenInMedicine

Ali Mientus, M.D. @AliMientus
@womeninmedchat A1: I was talking to a chief resident at an interview about how I enjoy teaching, and she told me about how she’s getting a Master’s in medical education. I never even knew something like that existed, and now it’s in my future goals. #womeninmedicine
Carina Seah @CarinaSeah
@InduPartha @womeninmedchat @petradMD @taylor_bono Oh gosh, no! I am constantly overwhelmed by the accomplishments of everyone in this chat! #WomenInMedicine
Carrie Bernard @carriedbernard
@womeninmedchat When my mother was undergoing chemo for lung cancer and I asked for a leave (unpaid) I was pressured not to do so. At that moment I realized that no one would put my needs front and centre. #WomenInMedicine
ShereeseM, MS/MBA @ShereesePubHlth
Good evening all. I'm Shereese. This chat offered an opportunity to take a break from writing a module on infection control during medication administration, so thank you. #womeninmedicine https://t.co/f2KNDKHSCL

@sarabelpon @womeninmedchat @petradMD @taylor_bono @Bucks @NBA Hi Sara! My Nets won their first playoff game yesterday and I am stoked! #WomenInMedicine
Indu Partha, MD FACP @InduPartha
@womeninmedchat A1: early on- marriage and motherhood. Both planned and expected but set a trajectory. More recently, the bitterness I felt at my job made me realize I had to make a change. Didn’t expect to start a “new career” this late but SO glad I did! #WomeninMedicine
Priyanka V. Chugh, MD @AntiWheatGirl
@womeninmedchat A1 For me a huge career defining moment was having really kind attendings in my 3rd year who shared their experiences with me and welcomed me into their clinical space thereby allowing me to comfortably explore career options and ultimately decide on surgery! #WomeninMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@careyjans @womeninmedchat @petradMD @taylor_bono @EmoryMSTP Welcome Carey! #WomenInMedicine
Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@AliMientus @womeninmedchat I heard the same thing on the interview trail, and I'm super curious to learn more! Especially since #radonc is not well known amongst med students, and I'd love to increase awareness of the field. #WomenInMedicine
Petra Dolman, M.D.🇨🇦 @petradMD

Shreya P. Trivedi MD @ShreyaTrivediMD
@womeninmedchat A1. Its been the #rejections. Although quite painful at 1st, it was a blessing in disguise and had to learn more was waiting for me and more that I had the potential to achieve #Womeninmedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@AntiWheatGirl @womeninmedchat @petradMD @taylor_bono @coopermedschool @BMCSurgery Congrats again! #WomenInMedicine

@AliMientus @womeninmedchat @petradMD @taylor_bono Hi Ali! #WomenInMedicine
Jennifer Hunt @jhuntpath
@womeninmedchat A1: most of my career moves have been a little bit unexpected. Or at least "early." Non-traditional pathways are becoming more and more common. #womeninmedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@InduPartha @womeninmedchat @petradMD @taylor_bono Great to “see” you Indu! #WomenInMedicine
Shreya P. Trivedi MD @ShreyaTrivediMD
@AliMientus @womeninmedchat I am getting an MHPE (masters in health professions education) currently and happy to talk/help in anyway as well! #WomeninMedicine
Quin Stevens @quinstevens
@womeninmedchat A1: stumbling upon a IP violence shelter & organization in my town about 4 years ago. Had no idea it existed. I’ve learned so much volunteering there over the years and it introduced me formally to discussing social determinants of health. #womeninmedicine
Carina Seah @CarinaSeah
@ShreyaTrivediMD @womeninmedchat How did you turn yourself around after the tough rejections? What advice would you give to someone rejected from something they really wanted? #WomenInMedicine

@CarinaSeah @womeninmedchat @CityYearMKE by the disparities between infrastructure between Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam since I spent time in all 3 on my trip. The Khmer Rouge impacted Cambodia so much that they seemed incredibly far behind some of their neighbors. 2/2 #WomenInMedicine

@AntiWheatGirl @womeninmedchat Kuddos to the attending(s)! Hope he or she knows the mark they have left #WomeninMedicine
R Klein MD MEHP @RKleinMD
@AliMientus @womeninmedchat I Finished my masters in MedEd after years of being an attending. Wish I did it sooner. #WomenInMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@womeninmedchat A1: Mine was not matching orthopaedics. While I was shocked (great grades, steps, more than enough places to rank), it was exactly what needed to happen. I have an amazing career in pathology and I don’t look back!!!! #WomenInMedicine
Priyanka V. Chugh, MD @AntiWheatGirl
@sarabelpon @AliMientus @womeninmedchat I would have loved to have Rad Onc content in my curriculum. I feel like I really don’t understand what it is! #WomenInMedicine
Jennifer Hunt @jhuntpath
@AliMientus @womeninmedchat I did an MEd as a combined degree in medical school. I found it totally by accident from a flyer in my mailbox. Has definitely changed my path. #womeninmedicine
ShereeseM, MS/MBA @ShereesePubHlth
When I worked in the peds sector, I realized "coordinated care" was not a thing as I thought. A pediatrician laughed at the notion. Just then I decided to advocate for pediatric medically fragile children & their families. #advocacy #womeninmedicine
Shreya P. Trivedi MD @ShreyaTrivediMD
@InduPartha @womeninmedchat I actually havent heard that ! Will need to remind myself WHEN the next rejection comes in #WomeninMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@AliMientus @womeninmedchat That sounds like something I should look into! #MastersInMedicalEducation #WomenInMedicine
Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@AntiWheatGirl @AliMientus @womeninmedchat I hadn't even heard of it when I started med school and fell into it by chance! I'm not saying it's for everyone, but I think students should all be aware of their options! #WomenInMedicine
Carina Seah @CarinaSeah
@sarabelpon @womeninmedchat @CityYearMKE Absolutely. That sounds incredible. I think I have been hesitant because I am always sensitive and worried about "Voluntourism" and contributing to an exploitive "volunteering" experience. How did you vet the org you went with? #WomenInMedicine
Priyanka V. Chugh, MD @AntiWheatGirl
@ShreyaTrivediMD @womeninmedchat I’ve been practicing gratitude post-match (advice from our Dean on Match Day actually) and am writing thank you cards to all of the people who left a positive mark on me throughout medical school so they know how much it meant. #WomenInMedicine
#WomenInMedicine Chat @womeninmedchat
Thanks so much for sharing everybody, now it's time for Q2: What are some ways you experienced adversity in medical school? How did you overcome it? #WomenInMedicine https://t.co/ts9zcu2BQN
Melanie Fritz @melanie_fritz_
@womeninmedchat A1. after my undergrad degree in sociology, thought i wanted to do social work. after working at an infectious disease clinic, and getting to spend time in the hospital, i realized that i *loved* being in the hospital - and started the med school app process! #WomenInMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@MdSheryl @womeninmedchat I’m so sorry Sheryl... #WomenInMedicine
Marti Hlafka, MD @HlafkaMarti
@womeninmedchat I had another career before medicine for over 10 years. I felt so dissatisfied in a role that felt like I wasn’t making a difference. #WomenInMedicine
Petra Dolman, M.D.🇨🇦 @petradMD
@MdSheryl @womeninmedchat Sheryl! I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t even imagine. I feel like #medicine teaches us sometimes the “safety” of numbness. I know I’ve used work that way before also when dealing with traumatic life events. Thank you so much for sharing #WomenInMedicine
Priyanka V. Chugh, MD @AntiWheatGirl
@sarabelpon @AliMientus @womeninmedchat Absolutely! There are so many fields I wish I knew existed- not that it would have necessarily changed my decision but it would be good to be informed. #WomenInMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@jhuntpath @womeninmedchat So am I! It’s the best thing that could have EVER happened to me professionally! #WomenInMedicine
Jennifer Hunt @jhuntpath
@womeninmedchat A1: Being thrown into the deep end of something I could barely handle early in my career was career defining. I survived. NO...I thrived. It was very hard though! #womeninmedicine
E Wickersham, MD, MS @Wickersham_Eliz
@womeninmedchat A1: young female pt w appt telling me she needed me to take care of her anorexia nervous; med director of skilled nursing facility led to hospice which is a major interest and love of mine; working for a v sexist organization. #WomenInMedicine
Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@CarinaSeah @womeninmedchat @CityYearMKE I was lucky since the organization that I was in had already done site visits before creating official partnerships, so I didn't have any doubts about the type of experience I would have. It is challenging to find great options though. #WomenInMedicine
Bonnie Callahan @bcallahan430
@womeninmedchat #WomenInMedicine
R Klein MD MEHP @RKleinMD
@womeninmedchat A1. Being faced with health issues and disability. Realized that med culture doesn’t make it easy. #WomenInMedicine
Devika Das,MD @DevikaDasMD
@womeninmedchat A1 immigrating to the US post medical school and integration culturally, motherhood in residency and fellowship, not getting the job of my choice post training, picking up a leadership role very early in my career #womeninmedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA

Priyanka V. Chugh, MD @AntiWheatGirl

Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@CarinaSeah @womeninmedchat @CityYearMKE Some med schools have formal opportunities though with agreements in place! I would check with the school you're heading to and see what they have to offer! #WomenInMedicine
Petra Dolman, M.D.🇨🇦 @petradMD
Everyone make sure to say hi to Taylor! She made it safe n sound to our #WomenInMedicine chat 🤓
Dr. Jennifer Chen, MD FAAP @DrJenChen4kids
@DrFNA @AliMientus @womeninmedchat Yes, there are lots of MEd programs; some places also call it Master of Academic Medicine (no COI for USC, just happen to know more about this one because my asst PD did it) #womeninmedicine https://t.co/qMy7vCx6rp
Jennifer Hunt @jhuntpath
@womeninmedchat A2: I struggled with genetics in medical school. In fact, I think I was failing it! I had a wonderful professor who took me on as his personal project. He just emailed me, 20 years later! Great mentor! #womeninmedicine
Shreya P. Trivedi MD @ShreyaTrivediMD
@womeninmedchat A2. Had a family member quite sick and part of me felt bad for myself that others didnt have to spend an hr or 2/day taking care family things. It forced me to become much more intentional and focused bc time and #predictability of the day were not on my side #WomeninMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA

Kelsey Priest, PhD, MPH @kelseycpriest
@womeninmedchat A1: Failures have been important parts of the journey. If I hadn’t bombed the mcat my 1st try, & delayed my app a year, I wouldn’t have worked in a job that introduced me to the Md/phd program that I ultimately applied/transferred into. #WomeninMedicine
Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@DrFNA @womeninmedchat Everything happens for a reason! And it seems like you're doing amazing things in pathology now! #WomenInMedicine
Shreya P. Trivedi MD @ShreyaTrivediMD
@CarinaSeah @womeninmedchat Some rejections were much harder than others. For me, I often deal with pain by immersing myself in something else. As @InduPartha said, rejections are often a *redirection* #WomeninMedicine
Mama Docs Run This @mamadocsrunthis
Dr. Diane Rosen is living her @bostonmarathon dream by running for @261fearless. She was super excited to meet Marathon Woman, @KVSwitzer today! Godspeed Dr. Rosen & all the amazing women on the course tomorrow. #MamaDocsRunThis #ILookLikeASurgeon #ObGynLife #WomenInMedicine https://t.co/z4iR0zMPoo

Roberta Gebhard DO @gebhard_roberta
@womeninmedchat Roberta Gebhard here, American Medical Women’s Association President. Defining moment in my career:trying to figure out what residency position to take. I had offers in Peds, OB/GYN and Family Medicine. Decided on Family Medicine, and I’ve been able to do all 3! #womeninmedicine
Mom PharmD @MomPharmD
@CarinaSeah @ShreyaTrivediMD @womeninmedchat The right thing has a way of finding you, be patient & love the parts of your life you’ve got, learn what you can to grow strong for the next challenge. #WomenInMedicine
Devika Das,MD @DevikaDasMD
@womeninmedchat A2 Being the first one in your family going to medical school is tough. Nothing prepares you for it and it took me about 2 years to get my bearings. I almost quit 🤦🏽‍♀️#womeninmedicine
Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@DrFNA @womeninmedchat @petradMD @taylor_bono @Bucks @NBA Fingers crossed for you team...unless they play mine 😂 #WomenInMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@womeninmedchat A2: My worst moment came in my personal life as an MS2. My mom died of colon cancer and I struggled. She made me promise that I would stay in school and keep working hard. Her strength was my strength. Her determination for me to succeed kept me going. #WomenInMedicine
Priyanka V. Chugh, MD @AntiWheatGirl
@RKleinMD @womeninmedchat But I’m sure your experiences as a patient are makin you a better doctor. I love the #DocsWithDisabilities campaign for highlighting the unique contributions that those of us with chronic disease/disability bring to medicine #WomenInMedicine

Melanie Fritz @melanie_fritz_
@DrFNA @jhuntpath @womeninmedchat wow! you seem so passionate about pathology- it's amazing to realize it wasn't your initial choice. gives me hope that i can thrive with unexpected twists and turns that may come my way 😊 #WomenInMedicine

Shreya P. Trivedi MD @ShreyaTrivediMD
@AntiWheatGirl @melanie_fritz_ @womeninmedchat Please write about ur experience and/or the impact its made on the ppl who have received it. It can be inspire others as well. Good medical educators are not given enough value and often most of these things are not compensated but that note can go a long way #WomeninMedicine
Nadia Jamil, M.D. @NadiaJamilMD
@womeninmedchat A1: finished my undergrad at the University of Alberta and moved down to the states- did a Masters of Science while I established residency for TX, & met some great friends. I think it helped me grow as a person and gain some independence before medical school! #WomenInMedicine
Petra Dolman, M.D.🇨🇦 @petradMD
@DrFNA @womeninmedchat Wow! I can’t even imagine. Thanks so much for sharing that Valerie. I’m so proud of you for the woman you’ve become and I am sure your mom is too ❤️ #WomenInMedicine Grateful for you lady.
Carrie Bernard @carriedbernard
@sarabelpon @womeninmedchat I found other supportive people after the initial shock. We need to find our friends and remember when they need support #WomenInMedicine
Bonnie Callahan @bcallahan430
@womeninmedchat I had a horrible adjustment. It was the first time I ever left home really (college was 5 minutes from home). First time I ever had to study. My friend who went with me to med school helped me. And I got a cat... And my dad visited A LOT. #WomenInMedicine
Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@womeninmedchat A2: I had an attending who told me that certain specialties weren't for women because our primary job is mother. He made a point to highlight that he doesn't have this talk with males. I pointed out the great women docs I knew and the importance of fatherhood. #WomenInMedicine
Susan Hingle @SusanHingle
@womeninmedchat A2: Sexual harassment. Imposter syndrome. Low self-esteem. So grateful for an amazing mentor who helped me so much. #WomenInMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@melanie_fritz_ @jhuntpath @womeninmedchat I did a path elective after I had already applied ortho, and I really liked it. Even said I wished I had known about it sooner. Funny how these things turn out! It probably shaped my choice to subspecialize in bone/soft tissue pathology. #WomenInMedicine
Shreya P. Trivedi MD @ShreyaTrivediMD

Now it's time for Q3: For those who took a gap year or repeat year in medical school, did this help you in the long run? For those who did not take a gap year or repeat year in medical school, could you speak to why this might be beneficial to some students? #WomenInMedicine https://t.co/xq7zyomfpw

@womeninmedchat Starting at 35, I already had gained a knowledge of who I was as a person, what I could handle, and how I would deal with it. There was a certain amount of gender bias and sexual hareassment, but much less than I had dealt with before. #WomeninMedicine
Marguerite Duane @mduanemd
@womeninmedchat A2. Experienced greatest adversity before Med school. After graduating in 3 years with honors from @Cornell & earning MHA I did not get into Med school first 2 years I applied. Met with Med school admissions who said my MHA said I was not serious about being MD #WomenInMedicine
Shreya P. Trivedi MD @ShreyaTrivediMD
@womeninmedchat A3. I took a gap yr btw undergrad and med school and was one of the best things. I didn't expect to get a fulbright and at the same time, felt guilty leaving my family but it was one of the few times in my life I truly felt free and actually lived for me #WomeninMedicine

Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@SusanHingle @womeninmedchat The sexual harassment can be terrible, especially from older, male patients. Just last week, I had a patient shove his hands in his pants when I was trying to admit him...it definitely adds a challenge to providing compassionate patient care. #WomenInMedicine
Melanie Fritz @melanie_fritz_
@DevikaDasMD @CarinaSeah @womeninmedchat i also don't have anyone medical people in my extended family- i found connecting with students a year ahead of me in school (through extracurriculars, etc) to be SO helpful. all the info is fresh in their minds and they are often happy to help! #WomenInMedicine
R Klein MD MEHP @RKleinMD
@DevikaDasMD @womeninmedchat Agree! You feel automatically behind bc all the ‘doctor kids’ seem to know how it works. And having to explain it (and why you are never around) to family and friends over and over. #WomenInMedicine
Priyanka V. Chugh, MD @AntiWheatGirl
@womeninmedchat A3. I didn’t take one during but I took 2 yrs between undergrad and medical school. I think that was truly the best decision I could have made. It allowed me to grow up and become more independent and sure of myself as a person before diving into medical school #WomenInMedicine
Bonnie Callahan @bcallahan430
@womeninmedchat A3. I cannot speak to an extra year of medical school, but I had to take an extra year of residency due to illness. I made use of it reading and thinking and while I always must account for it, it was not the end of the world (though it felt like it then). #WomenInMedicine

@womeninmedchat A3. I came into medical school with such clarity and was not distracted as much bc I had given myself the space to live fully/freely (though i know med school shouldnt where u cant do that too but med school certainly was more stressful than freeing for me lol #WomeninMedicine
Elizabeth Newell, MD @md_newell
@womeninmedchat Being a female, I think in retrospect I notice it more than I did at the time, was just happy to be in medical school, got many inappropriate questions comments in school, rounds, and interviewing, most things don't bother me though so it just rolled off me. #WomenInMedicine
Priyanka V. Chugh, MD @AntiWheatGirl
@RKleinMD @DevikaDasMD @womeninmedchat Explaining to family and friends is the most frustrating part. They want you to succeed but then they also want you around and explaining over and over again why you’re missing things is SO painful sometimes #WomenInMedicine
Kelsey Priest, PhD, MPH @kelseycpriest
@womeninmedchat A3: 3 gap year(s!!) for me. I think there is incredible value in stepping away during medical school. Space to process. Space to learn other things. Space to grow in different ways. I am all for folks taking their time! #womeninmedicine

@womeninmedchat A3: I didn't during school, but did before. It was the greatest decision I ever made because I grew so much by doing something I loved instead of studying. I explored the world, learned about life, and found that my career goals were much better defined after. #WomenInMedicine

@womeninmedchat A3. Does 4ish (😅) yrs PhD count? Personally I was *way* burnt out and discouraged after M1/M2 and my PhD time has given me the time and intellectual freedom to rediscover myself and my curiosity, creativity, and passion for this career again #doubledocs #burnout #WomenInMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@womeninmedchat A3: we see a lot of students doing gap years as a research year to work with someone in their specialty of choice to make them a more competitive applicant. This seems to be working as many of our students are matching in competitive specialties after doing this #WomenInMedicine
Ruth Habte @ruthmhabte

Marti Hlafka, MD @HlafkaMarti
@womeninmedchat Students who take a gap year or more have had the opportunity to grow up a bit, and they often have worked a job during that time. It allows them to learn professional behaviors and it seems to enhance their focus. #womeninmedicine

Simone Lebeuf @DrSimoneLebeuf
@womeninmedchat A1: I had my daughter when I was 19 - so I had to make a decision about medicine early on. Being a young mum also led me to my subspecialty. I’m proud to work w/ adolescent-led families, it’s the biggest reason I pursued my specific fellowship program #WomeninMedicine

@sarabelpon @womeninmedchat Ive also noticed that gap year students are more comfortable/confident in the 3rd and 4th years. Especially if they had a job during that time and worked in a hierarchical system before #WomenInMedicine
#WomenInMedicine Chat @womeninmedchat
Great input everybody, now it's time for Q4: Does/did your medical school have programs, support services, or resources to aid in taking gap years/leave of absences etc? #WomenInMedicine https://t.co/dtZElxmqd3
Nusheen Ameenuddin MD MPH MPA FAAP🧕🏽👩🏽‍⚕️ @namd4kids
@womeninmedchat A1: I often referred to myself as developmentally delayed in residency. I was felt like it was just a little behind everyone else. even in my career, I don’t think I’ve been as ambitious as my contemporaries. Most of my leadership opportunities were accidents. #WomenInMedicine
Ruth Habte @ruthmhabte
@womeninmedchat A2: I had a tough time on my core surgery rotation, partly bc of stress leading up to a huge exam & the hours, but more so related to environment. I learned a lot about how I manage stress & found music (specifically Beyoncé)&debriefing w classmates very helpful #womeninmedicine
Melanie Fritz @melanie_fritz_
@womeninmedchat A3. i have friends taking a leave of absence in med school for mental health reasons. i am so proud to see them prioritizing their well-being, though i know they are going through a tough time. wish mental health was less stigmatized/more supported in #MedEd #WomenInMedicine

Paneez Khoury MD @KhouryMD
@womeninmedchat A2: Forging thru sexual harassment and getting thru was just the norm, how did we overcome it? I think most #WomenInMedicine are at core strong women and even back then we stuck up for each other, albeit more silently.

@womeninmedchat 3/ what’s interesting to me is how many women leaders in different generations have said that that’s much how their opportunities occurred as well. Almost none of what I’m doing now was planned. Sometimes you just have to be open to opportunity when it presents #WomenInMedicine

Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@SanzianaR @womeninmedchat Absolutely. Especially since you are never getting that year back! #WomenInMedicine
Elizabeth Ristagno, MD, MSc @ERistagno
@womeninmedchat A3 i repeated a year in medical school. I learned that I had resilience and also learned humility. I also had the opportunity to get research funding from a pediatrics society which launched my interest in research and pediatrics! #WomenInMedicine

Nadia Jamil, M.D. @NadiaJamilMD
@womeninmedchat A4: I think both my medical school and residency have accommodated those that need it. Med school was huge, and residency is small (12 per year, 36 total) so the residency probably felt it more when they did have to accommodate, but did so anyway! #WomenInMedicine

E Wickersham, MD, MS @Wickersham_Eliz
@womeninmedchat A3: I worked for 4 years as a “Lab rat” aka research tech in molecular biology between undergrad and med school. Had to really decide this was what I wanted. The price got much higher overall during those years. #WomenInMedicine
Paneez Khoury MD @KhouryMD
@womeninmedchat A4: In fact even programs in IM disliked the gap year I took. One program director said during my interview "this is a red flag...shows maybe you aren't committed to pursuing clinical medicine, how can you just take a year between your 3rd/4th yrs 4 research?" #WomenInMedicine

@AliMientus @womeninmedchat There aren’t many of the post-sophomore fellowships out there because they are hard to fund. With interest in pathology declining, I wish there was more funding available for them! #WomenInMedicine
E Wickersham, MD, MS @Wickersham_Eliz
@womeninmedchat A4: No idea at this point. When I was in med school there was no option for something like this but I almost had to repeat my MS1 year because I almost didn’t pass physiology. It was all psychological, which in itself was revealing. #WomenInMedicine
Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD

@womeninmedchat A5: Carefully consider why you want to do this, what you want to get from it, and be sure you get that from that time. #WomenInMedicine
Bonnie Callahan @bcallahan430
@womeninmedchat A5. Account for it somehow. Do something worthwhile or have a good story for it. They will ask what you did. #WomenInMedicine

@womeninmedchat A5. There are many paths in medicine - you can write your own. Also now with technology (sorry am a #podcaster), there many ways to learn and keep up with medicine while other things may be calling you #WomeninMedicine

@womeninmedchat A5: take it if you need it! For health, personal reasons, or a degree. Just be prepared to answer ?s about it in interviews & know that not everyone may understand/agree w/your decision. But then again, maybe you wouldn’t want to match at a residency that didn’t. #WomenInMedicine
Kristen Young @kristenyoung
@womeninmedchat My gap year(s) experience could be a novel or you could call me a non-trad- ended up teaching high school out of necessity for a job & curiosity. 100% don't regret it & would advocate for more med students to consider gap years outside of medicine. #WomenInMedicine
Valerie A. Fitzhugh, MD @DrFNA
@womeninmedchat A5: if you’re going to do a gap year, be sure it fits into your long term goals. That is how it will best help you going forward! #WomenInMedicine
Paneez Khoury MD @KhouryMD
@womeninmedchat Its crazy re-living these experiences...how could someone say that to a trainee with a straight-face? I feel like I blocked all these memories, thanks @womeninmedchat haha! Wish said PD could see me today. Our @NEJM article came out last week. #WomenInMedicine
Sara Beltrán Ponce, MD @SaraBelPonMD
@bcallahan430 @womeninmedchat Very true. When it comes time to apply for med school or residency, interviewers will want to know what you've been up to and why! #WomenInMedicine
Dr. Jennifer Chen, MD FAAP @DrJenChen4kids
@womeninmedchat #WomenInMedicine Q5: Ask yourself if there’s something that you would regret not doing or would be much harder to do later in life. Also, if you’re not sure you’re ready for that next step (eg residency apps), it’s ok to take that gap year to give yourself more time to think too!
Marti Hlafka, MD @HlafkaMarti
@womeninmedchat A5: I would say if they really felt the need to take time to do something else for a while, do it. #WomeninMedicine

@womeninmedchat A1: I'm Sawsan, DIO in Abu Dhabi. For me, it's always been about following what feels right. Sticking to the plan can close doors. I followed my husband and his dreams to the UAE after completing residency. I'm so glad I did. I love practicing internationally. #WomenInMedicine
Indu Partha, MD FACP @InduPartha
@womeninmedchat You do you. Medicine is a long journey. Some are better with taking longer and others wish they had finished sooner. Either way, you can be a success! #WomeninMedicine (2/2)

Alexandra Anderson M.D. @AlexAndersonMD
@womeninmedchat A5: Do what you need to do to fully commit to medicine; if your reasons are fun, have a blast and rule out other careers. If your reasons are heavier, take the time you need. Medicine will wait. If it’s research, you may need more than a year? #womeninmedicine

@AlexAndersonMD @InduPartha @womeninmedchat So true! Everyone's path is different, but that's what makes medicine so unique.

Mom PharmD @MomPharmD
@DrSimoneLebeuf @womeninmedchat I felt bad but it was easier for our family that we viewed my clinical yr like a deployment so I was only by accident available for child stuff. #WomenInMedicine

@melanie_fritz_ @womeninmedchat This is so important. So glad your school was supportive too! #WomenInMedicine
Paneez Khoury MD @KhouryMD
@katie_sharkey @womeninmedchat I think this time metric for women (#Fullby40?) is actually quite detrimental. No added time for childbearing for K applications (though there is for R???). Nonsensical and great reason for #WomenInMedicine dropping out early in academic careers.

Melanie Fritz @melanie_fritz_
@kristenyoung @ShreyaTrivediMD @womeninmedchat and for me, having those experiences between undergrad + med school can give me a little extra motivation when i'm feeling overwhelmed. more confidence to *know* i'm on the right path, even though i don't always *feel* that way. #WomenInMedicine

Michael S. Sinha MD, JD, MPH @DrSinhaEsq
@RKleinMD @womeninmedchat 100% agree. We treat patients with disabilities all the time but do not adequately support colleagues and trainees with health problems and disabilities. #WomenInMedicine
Paneez Khoury MD @KhouryMD
@katie_sharkey @womeninmedchat Its applying a male-centric model to #WomenInMedicine and #WomenInAcademics..forcing women to forgo families or delay childrearing so they can secure funding. Then have to double-back and pay for IVF to accomplish family goals. Its cruel.

Dr. Jennifer Chen, MD FAAP @DrJenChen4kids
@melanie_fritz_ @womeninmedchat Personally, I did Fulbright before med school because I knew once I got my MD and married my then-fiancé, I’d probably never get another opportunity to live abroad with full funding! There are a lot more masters options now so I don’t regret not doing that yet #WomenInMedicine

Dr. Jennifer Chen, MD FAAP @DrJenChen4kids
@MomPharmD @melanie_fritz_ @womeninmedchat Yes, hubby and I have discussed a lot about getting in most of our international “bucket list” places before we have kids! Not that it’s impossible to do with kids, but then we’d have to pack diaper bag, stroller, etc... #WomenInMedicine

@AnnYoungMD @melanie_fritz_ @womeninmedchat Funny, I was talking to another resident who said she+hubby were planning to take a gap year after her residency to also travel around the world, maybe work a little locums to keep in touch w medicine and pay for the travel.

@womeninmedchat A5: Late answer to #womeninmedicine. Ironically I was having real time conversation w/ a #mentee in Ohio about this exact topic! Thoughts shared w/ her: a gap year can be amazingly helpful! Space & time to grow in ways that will help make your “why” clearer are invaluable!

Ann Young MD @AnnYoungMD
@DrJenChen4kids @melanie_fritz_ @womeninmedchat Some people said "well what if your fellowship interviewers look down on taking a yr off?" IMO as long as I can show I used the year meaningfully for my life/aspirations then it'll be fine. Interviewers that don't get it, I don't wanna work for em. #WomenInMedicine
