But as you look deeper, you find that they did not separate
sub-specialty doctors from general physicians, and on average
specialists make more, and there are more male specialists. But
then is it gender bias that pushes woman into less lucrative
specialties, because of home and family obligations.
The strange thing is, that despite perception that males
make better doctors, the data does not support that. One of the
largest studies published in JAMA which looked at 1.5 million
Medicare hospital admissions over four years revealed that if
your admitting physician was female, you were 0.4% less likely
to die, and that would save 32,000 lives a year. The FDA has
approved many therapies that cost more and save less lives.
Although there were some issues with the study [they used the

admitting doctor as owner of data but the majority of patients were
taken care of by multiple doctors, both male and female], data does
support that female doctors tend to follow guidelines more closely.
I believe that with the new generation, all kinds of biase, both
gender and race, are disappearing. Hopefully, every physician, more
importantly, will be looked at and respected on his or her own merit
rather than his or her sex or skin color.
