    Hello everyone!

    British Medical Journal published a study earlier today that sought to determine if a surgeon’s gender made any difference in patients’ outcomes. The authors examined nearly 105,000 surgeries conducted in Ontario, Canada between 2007 and 2015. Differences in patient, surgeon, and hospital characteristics were accounted for.

    The study concludes that patients treated by female surgeons had a small, but statistically significant difference in 30-day mortality as well as complications and readmission.

    Best of luck with your applications!
