Session 34: Year in review - Chairing
I am a consultant in critical care and anaesthesia at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. My interests include critical care ultrasound, medical law and ethics and I am our unit’s Faculty Tutor. I joined the WICM Sub-Committee as I feel strongly that being a woman or having caring commitments should not be a bar to a successful career in ICM. As a member of WICM I would aim to promote ICM as a female-friendly specialty to women in all stages of their medical training, from undergraduate level upwards. I also hope to collaborate in the development of mentoring and networking opportunities for women in ICM, similar to those developed by the Women in Surgery (WinS) network.
