Women physicians have made great strides not only in gaining acceptance but also in excelling in the medical profession. A large minority of physicians today are women. Success in the dual roles of mother and physician really is possible, and the experience offers a uniquely rich and complex life. Our hope is that the practical suggestions offered here will prove useful to the next generation of women physicians and that each subsequent generation will become ever more successful in filling these roles.
