Gender Gap in Academic Medicine - Potential Barriers and Implications for Change
In this critical time of healthcare evolution, bolstering the physician workforce in academic medicine is imperative and must strategically address the existing gender inequities. We have seen little progress in the past decades in terms of female representation at rank and in leadership positions in the halls of academic medicine. The authors cast a timely and necessary lens on the current status of women in medicine, illuminating the persistent gender disparities and barriers that exist. They assemble a robust collection of causative factors and present practical implications and targeted interventions.
