Portico Magazine's Women in Medicine

Portico Magazine's Women in Medicine

Summer 2019

CATEGORY: Healthcare & Fitness

We are thrilled to celebrate many of Birmingham’s best physicians in this special issue of Portico Magazine. In the last two years, the percentage of women attending medical school in the United States exceeded male students for the first time in history, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges, and it’s a trend that is expected to continue. Inside our inaugural Women In Medicine special issue, you’ll meet 13 diverse and accomplished physicians from six practices, all on the forefront of their specialties. In addition, you’ll learn the story of Dr. Maggie Somerall, a trailblazer who was one of the first—and most well-respected—female OB/GYNs in Birmingham. In her own words, Dr. Somerall discusses her 30-plus-year career as a women’s health practitioner and the joys of instructing a new generation of physicians in her second act as an instructor at the UAB School of Medicine. We hope you will be inspired by our Featured doctors, all of whom are dedicated to providing compassionate and cutting-edge care right here in our community.
