UBERDOC Celebrates Women’s History Month
As a female-founded company, UBERDOC is proud to have an incredible network of female physicians. The AAMC’s annual report on student enrollment showed that the rate of women physicians entering medical school has reached 50%, for the first time ever! This means there are more women entering into the medical field, ready to serve their communities with passion, expert knowledge, and outstanding care.
