Challenges female physicians face in medicine and the strength of vulnerability

“I know I am not alone in my thoughts; I am just echoing sentiments of other female physicians. We are mothers, wives, patient advocates, and educators. And we’re all suddenly finding ourselves in unchartered waters. In weathering this pandemic, I’ve taken time to reflect. I wish I could say I emerged from this introspection having conquered all my fears. Instead, I have discovered the immense strength it takes to be vulnerable. I can admit I do not have all the answers, and the uncertainty of tomorrow gnaws at me. I also know that despite the upheaval, I wouldn’t trade my job for anything in the world.”

Shweta Akhouri is a family physician.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD articles, “I have discovered the immense strength it takes to be vulnerable.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2020/05/i-have-discovered-the-immense-strength-it-takes-to-be-vulnerable.html)
