WHAT WE DO

UC Women of Ortho supports an open dialogue of ways to support and improve upon leadership training for women who pursue a career in orthopedic care. Every year, we host a one-day leadership summit at one of our UC campuses.

The 2023 summit was held September 9 at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus in San Francisco, California. The event was attended by 65 women physicians, fellows and residents from UC orthopedic departments and select northern California practices.

The 2024 summit will be held September 14 at UC San Diego in La Jolla, California. The event is open to attendance by women physicians, fellows and residents from the five UC orthopedic departments and affiliated northern and southern California practices. We look forward to coming together again for a day of coaching, leadership training and empowerment.

We encourage anyone interested to get involved. We are continually seeking help organizing committees and projects, as well as grants and financial support to fund our events and outreach efforts.
