    Hello everyone!

    According to Doximity, women physicians earn an average of $91,284 less than men. This finding was reflected to account for location, medical specialty, hours worked and when the doctor graduated to reflect experience. The study included a sample size of 36,000 full-time physician salaries across 48 medical specialties in 50 major metro areas. (Part-time doctors were intentionally excluded.)

    This translates into a 27% lower salary across the nation. Based on a small and statistically insignificant amount of ‘chatter’ we’ve seen on this report, it appears that at least some medical school students were caught off guard by this report. As a result, we thought perhaps we should post about it here to help get the word out.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Are women worse negotiators or do men exaggerate their salaries for these surveys?
