It’s September 2018 – Women in Medicine Month, as declared by the American Medical Association (AMA) – and today there are 333,833 female physicians practicing in the U.S. Conversely, there were about 200 women physicians in 1960 (to quote a campaign from that era: "You’ve come a long way, baby!").

To celebrate Women in Medicine Month (sponsored by the American Medical Association) we wrote about one of our favorite female physicians, Dr. Michelle Bens. September's Women in Medicine Month serves as a platform to showcase the accomplishments of female physicians and highlights advocacy needs related to professional concerns of women physicians and health issues affecting women patients.
