On 25th February, Prof Alan Alperstein of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Cape Town will present a free public talk on ‘Feminisation of the Medical Profession’

Abstract : Over the last 20 years the demographics of our medical school has changed dramatically. Over 70% of first year students are female.  This has an impact on training and service delivery going into the future.  What obstacles does a female doctor encounter? What options are there for women in medicine?  Have we created a problem going forward?  These issues will be discussed and options offered.
