​Advancing women in medical leadership


​The NSLHD advancing women in medical leadership initiative aims to support an increase in the representation of women in medical leadership positions across the organisation.

At NSLHD, women currently represent only 29 per cent of senior staff specialists, 34 per cent of visiting medical officers (VMOs) and 38 per cent of heads of department. Our organisation is working with senior women medical leaders on how to support and inspire the next generation of leaders to increase the number of women in senior medical leadership to 50 per cent by 2025. This initiative focuses on understanding the potential barriers that exist for women progressing into medical leadership, and developing a series of initiatives and resources that support an increase in representation.

This page is a hub for the medical workforce at NSLHD to access a range of resources and opportunities relating to leadership development and progression through the medical career pipeline.
