AAMC Launches New Initiative to Address and Eliminate Gender Inequities
While women have made up almost half of graduating medical students since 2004, they represent just 35% of active physicians. Female physicians make 76 cents and female scientists make 90 cents for every dollar earned by men, even after adjusting for age, years of experience, and specialty. Fewer than 20% of medical school deans and department chairs are women.
These and other systemic disparities have prompted the AAMC to launch a bold new initiative on gender equity, calling on medical schools, teaching hospitals, and academic societies to step up their efforts to identify and address the discriminatory practices that have led to stark gender differences in pay, promotion, and representation among specialties, among other areas.
