There has been much attention paid to the role of women as leaders and administrators in the healthcare workforce in recent media publications.  For perhaps the first time, many young women are entering the healthcare field with advanced-level degrees in business administration, public health, public policy, etc.  This is in contrast with the first generation of women healthcare leaders who, in general, started their careers as providers, most notably as nurses, before transferring their skills to more administrative roles.  This panel discussion will speak directly to female students who are interested in hearing stories from the front lines of healthcare from the perspective of other healthcare careerists.
