Personal Experiences in Balancing Family and a Surgical Career

On our third event of the “Women in Neurosurgery” Lecture Series we brought together mothers at various stages of their career and allowed for an honest reflection on personal relationships, professional endeavours, pregnancy, medical leave and forming a family as a surgeon.

This panel featured Dr. Julia Radic (pediatric and general neurosurgeon practicing in Saskatoon), Dr. Jenna Smith-Forrester (PGY-2 in Neurosurgery at Dalhousie University) and Dr. Nicole Pendleton (PGY-1 in Neurosurgery at the University of Saskatchewan).
