On this inaugural first ever Canadian Women Physicians’ Day, chosen to honor Dr Jennie Trout who was the first woman licensed to practice medicine in Canada in 1875, I celebrate all the amazing women I have had the privilege of learning from and working with over the nearly 60 years since my first day as a medical student in 1964. I honor and thank them all. Special thanks to Dr. Michiko Maruyama (@medical_doodles) who is an inspiration to all who know her, especially me, who generously offered this wonderful art of hers to everyone “to feel free to share, post or use this artwork in celebration of women in medicine.” Thank you Michiko.
