The total number of women physicians in the United States tripled between 1970 and 1990. Almost 50% of incoming residents in dermatology are women. This article discusses some of the changes, opportunities, and challenges within our profession wrought by these demographic changes. The incorporation of women into all aspects of our specialty is a subject that warrants review, consideration, and creative solutions.
