#OperationEqualAccess - Prof David Zimmerman interview

For our #OperationEqualAccess campaign, we are speaking to a number of industry leaders to start a conversation on equality in surgery.

Professor David Zimmerman is ESCP's representative on the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), ESCP Executive Board Member, and a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at Elisabeth-TweeSteden Hospital, Tilburg, The Netherlands.

In this video, Prof Zimmerman speaks about gender disparities in academic surgery, the steps UEMS has taken to increase gender diversity in their student intake and examiners, and how female role models are important to both the younger and older generations.
