Advancement of women

Urology is generally regarded as a male-dominated medical specialty. For this reason, the Department of Urology at the University Hospital Basel (USB) has introduced a concept for the advancement of women. The aim is to achieve a balanced ratio of female and male doctors by 2030. By 2025, the proportion of female assistant physicians should increase to at least 40% and the proportion of female senior physicians to at least 30%. The aim is for at least 25% of senior physicians to be women.

USB Urology should be known for its ability to achieve a good work-life balance. There should be equal opportunities between the sexes in clinical and surgical training, further training and academic careers. The development opportunities listed should also be open to part-time employees.

All vacancies can be found here.
