Jennifer Weiss is an Orthopaedic Surgeon specializing in Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine. Growing up as the daughter of an orthopaedic surgeon, Jennifer saw first-hand how male-dominated the world of medicine is. Throughout medical school, she encountered few female students and fewer women that were aspiring to become orthopaedic surgeons.
“My goal is to help aspiring women become successful surgeons.”
From the start, it has always been her goal to help aspiring women to become successful surgeons — and to inspire women to enter the field of surgery and not be intimidated by this largely male profession.
Dr. Weiss actively writes and speaks on the topic of women in medicine.
She has served on the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Board of Directors, and has led communications for the organization. She teaches communication skills to physicians, surgeons, and other health care clinicians both within her large integrated health care system in Southern California and within the Orthopaedic surgery societies. Her research is widely published, and she is an active leader and speaker within the medical community nationally and internationally.
