Ep28 | Women Leaders in Medicine – Dr. Shikha Jain by Medicus • A podcast on Anchor

Women have made up at least 40% of medical students in the US for over 25 years, yet this is not reflected in medical leadership.  Women account for only 18% of hospital CEOs and 16% of all deans and department chairs.  While the reasons behind this discrepancy are numerous and the potential solutions even more complex, there is hope.  We sat down with Dr. Shikha Jain, a hematology and oncology physician at Rush University Medical Center, to discuss some of these barriers to women leadership and some questions we all should be asking ourselves as we shape the future of medicine.Dr. Jain has also written for several organizations including Doximity, KevinMD, ASCO Connection, and completed a year as a Doximity writing fellow. Additionally, Dr. Jain has peer-reviewed publications on her research interests,  which include gender equity, career advancement for women, increasing underrepresented minorities in medicine, the impact of social media on medicine, and GI oncology. Her clinical research focus includes precision oncology, immunotherapy, neuroendocrine tumors and hepatocellular carcinoma.

I am a practicing, board certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am mother to a strong willed three and a half year old girl and twin baby boys, and a wife to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
