Women in Surgery
The ratio of male to female consultant surgeons in the UK is approximately 8:1 and we are on a mission to change that. Women in Surgery (WinS) is a national initiative dedicated to encouraging, enabling and inspiring women to fulfil their surgical career ambitions.
Register for the WinS network and you can connect with over 6,000 women from all career grades and specialties across the UK to collaborate, network and find support. Together, we are changing the face of surgery.
You can join WinS via your College account. If you have trouble registering, please email email@example.com.
WinS celebrates 30 year anniversary
In 2021 we celebrate 30 years of the Women in Surgery network and our continuing mission to improve gender equality and raise the profile of women in surgery. Because of the network’s efforts spanning the last three decades, the number of female consultant surgeons has risen by 10%. Women are now represented in all ten surgical specialties and at all career stages. While there is still work to be done to achieve gender parity, we are excited about the positive change and direction of the future of the profession.
