The percentage of women entering the cardiology workforce is low, despite the fact that half of all medical students are women. Despite the low numbers, many women have become luminaries in the field of cardiology, including Dee Dee Wang, M.D., director of advanced cardiovascular imaging at Henry Ford Hospital, pictured here.
