The oral surgery profession is heavily dominated by men, and therefore, being a woman in this field can be difficult. In today’s episode, we’re joined by Dr. Jaclyn Tomsic, an oral surgeon who didn’t let any of the hostility she experienced as a resident stop her from achieving her dreams. Today, Jaclyn works four days a week in private practice, and one day a week in the Case Western OMS program where she tries to give to residents what she wishes she had had when she was in their position. Jaclyn also has a large following on Instagram, and the goals she hopes to achieve through this platform are an increased visibility of the oral surgery profession and an increase in the number of women working in this field. For female listeners, this episode will inspire you to continue on the oral surgery path, even though it may be difficult at times. And for male listeners, this episode will open your eyes to the experiences of your female colleagues, and get you to rethink some misconceptions you may hold.
