Mentoring and Empowering Women in Endoscopy, Part 2

"As the workforce is getting more and more gender equal, women are occupying only less that twenty percent of the leadership positions."

Empowering women in endoscopy is something Dr. Arthi Sanjeevi is clearly passionate about. It shows in her work mentoring young gastroenterologists and in the way she tackles gender-related challenges in the field.

In this conversation, Dr. Sanjeevi discusses what’s missing when it comes to empowering women in gastroenterology, and what still needs to be done to bring more female physicians into the practice, especially advanced therapeutic endoscopy.

Sanjeevi is based in Tampa, Florida, with AdventHealth Medical Group and is double board certified in gastroenterology and internal medicine. She specializes in conditions of the pancreas and gallbladder, digestive cancers, esophageal motility and swallowing disorders, and advanced endoscopy, including therapeutic endoscopic retrograde pancreatography and deep enteroscopy.

Be sure to check out the first part of our conversation with Dr. Sanjeevi where we discuss the importance of mentoring and her work with the nonprofit Women in Endoscopy, which was launched in 2016 to provide classes and seminars about professional growth and leadership and foster networking among its members.
