Halakhic issues for women entering the medical field

שאלה:

Hi,

I am a religious girl who is currently studying in college and would like to go into the medical field. I wanted to know if you have any information on the Halachik challenges that a religious woman may face in the medical world and what are the rules with dress code regarding a woman wearing pants as part of the uniform.

Thank you.

In order to adress the question we will need some more details, like:

1. Are you studying medicine in order to become a full MD? or some other medical profession – if so, which?
2. What are the conditions in the school/country you are planning in going to study?
