Women in Retina


Women compose half the planet’s population, yet only in one in seven retina specialists are female. That’s a problem. NRMD invited a trio of retina experts to chime in.

María H. Berrocal, MD, offers her take on why employing more women in retina is best for patients and the bottom line. The moral reasons are myriad but rely on unquantifiable arguments. The data-oriented reader will find it hard to ignore Dr. Berrocal’s reliance on peer-reviewed journals and the Harvard Business Review.

But retina isn’t limited to the clinic. Anne Fung, MD, and Namrata Saroj, OD, present professional pearls to women who want to break into the industry side of retina. Their paths and experiences are different, but their destination—leading the next wave of medical retina therapies—is the same.
