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!").

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.
