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.
