Gender equality in academia – links to sustainable medical research and education


Academic career in medicine remains a global challenge for women. The majority of master and PhD students in medicine are women, but women still hold a minority of senior and leading faculty positions in this field. Two recent reports from the national knowledge center for gender perspectives and balance in research, documented vast knowledge gaps on women’s health, and limited teaching of women’s health in Norwegian Universities. The workshop focuses on how promoting women into tenured positions at universities may lead to a larger focus on women's health in education and research, and how international and multidisciplinary collaboration is a tool in this regard. Three keynote introductions will be followed by a round table discussion and questions from the audience.
