Deciding on a medical career is of immense importance because it will have a huge impact on your future life. At medical school exposure to many of the different specialities is limited or even non- existent, making it difficult to make an informed career choice.

Most times doctors and medical students don’t receive formal careers advice. BWIH is here to bridge that gap, by our mentor-ship programmes, career fairs and other events, we give students the opportunity to connect with and learn from women who have been through the same challenges.
