Over three-quarters of female physicians have experienced income inequality or other forms of gender-based discrimination,
according to a new survey by Merritt Hawkins.
“Women are entering medicine in record numbers
and are having a profound impact on the medical profession,” said Travis
Singleton, executive vice president of Merritt Hawkins. “However, despite these achievements, female
physicians continue to be paid less than their male counterparts and face other
forms of workplace discrimination.”
female physicians who have experienced gender-based discrimination, 75% have
experienced inappropriate words or actions directed toward them by fellow
physicians, 57% have experienced inappropriate words or actions from managers
or employers, and 56% have experienced lower compensation than male colleagues,
according to the survey.
