About Scrubs & Heels

The Story

When talking to female leaders in GI and Medicine, we often hear “I wish someone showed me how it gets done, opened that door for me, encouraged me to build on my idea, told me it is ok to do it differently… I wish I trusted my skills and myself more, and didn’t hesitate to ask for that leadership position … when I was a fellow or earlier in my career”.
And then, in a moment of collective solidarity, we hear : “we have come so far and have learned a lot along the way, there is still work to be done and we need to change the narrative for the next generation of women in GI and Medicine“.
At Scrubs & Heels, we want to create opportunities for women in GI and Medicine at different stages of their GI and Medicine career – from fellows to early career to seasoned gastroenterologists- to help them succeed and achieve their professional goals, whether being leaders in their institutions or group practice or GI and Medicine societies, heading editorial boards or building their own enterprise.
More importantly, we want women in GI and Medicine to find joy and a sense of accomplishment in their professional development, be their full 360 selves and find balance in their life!
