In a world that is rife with supposedly successful people flexing and showing off all day long online how much better they are than you because whatever reason they might personally come up with (hint: most have to do with how much money they supposedly have), is a little difficult to maintain motivation, especially if you don’t have the social advantages many of them surely possess.

This is especially true for women that spend time on social media sites scrolling through the so amazingly successful achievement of others: The girl with the perfect body, the one which landed a rich husband despite her dubious reputation, the heiress whose only work ever has been painting her nails which she started outsourcing at fifteen years old, etc. the list is endless.

Instead of endlessly going down a path of self-depreciation by doing that, you better find yourself a healthy dose of motivation that can carry you to achieve what many out there just pretend to have. Women who read these motivational books written can develop proper motivation far from the toxicity of social media that will allow them to focus on their own very real success.

“How can women in medicine help fix our broken healthcare system? Through true stories of women starting companies, building empires of kindness, fighting good fights, going to space, saving themselves, and working to make healthcare healthier, Procedure: Women Remaking Medicine beautifully profiles diverse voices from across medicine and inspires action.

The stories chronicled in Volume 1 are a mix of perspectives from women who have served many different roles in healthcare including, a critical care nurse and dean of a school of nursing, the head of U.S. country clinical operations for Genentech, one of the first women astronauts, two surgeons, three physicians, a policy innovator, and startup co-founders. Coming from different generations and different backgrounds and having chosen different paths in healthcare, the journeys of the women profiled are markedly unique but have led them toward the same goal — to heal a fractured system. ”
