Prof. Chris Lundgren: Head Anaesthesiology Chris Hani Bara. Hospital & WITS Uni.
This week we are joined by Professor Christina Lundgren, Academic Head of the Department of Anaesthesiology, at the University of the Witwatersrand, and clinical head of Anaesthesiology at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital.
We discuss some of the pioneering work in her career and factors contributing to her success. Although the ratio of female to male anaesthetist specialists has increased at the bottom of the pyramid women are under-represented in higher echelons of the discipline. We consider role models, mentorship and succession planning as mechanisms to encourage female leadership. Tune in for more.
