Medical students’ voices on gender discrimination: A faciliated conversation with Dr. Christina Surawicz

Facilitator’s notes from Dr. Christina Surawicz

Medical students at UWSOM have reported episodes of mistreatment, for many years, with most related to gender.  I created this podcast to educate faculty about the kinds of comments report by medical students, using real examples from a recent student survey. This podcast is a distillation of two hours of conversation with four current students.  You will find the medical students to be thoughtful and articulate. Moreover they educated me that I am wrong about “well-meaning” comments. I hope you find the discussion and suggestions helpful.  Feel free to contact me at
