On March 11, 2021, Canadian Women in Medicine, a non-profit organization that connects and supports women physicians, invites everyone to celebrate the first ever Canadian Women Physicians’ Day. March 11th was chosen to honour Dr. Jennie Trout, the first woman licensed to practice medicine in Canada.
Meet Dr. Hilary Baikie, an obstetrician-gynecologist based at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops.

Words of advice for future women physicians:
Love what you do!
