Transcript by Newsy**** BY MOLLY BOLAND You're watching multisource US video news analysis from Newsy The numbers are in and the gap is growing. “Newly trained female doctors in the U.S make nearly $17,000 less than their male counterparts. Researchers say there has been a widening gender gap in starting salaries for female doctors rising from a difference of $3,600 in 1999 to $16,819 in 2008. (KYW) In case you’re wondering, that’s a 17 percent difference. But for researchers - the real issue in question is not the numbers, but why the gap exists at all. A study released in this month’s Health Affairs issue looked into newly trained male and female physician’s work settings, number of hours, specialty choice, and other characteristics but found these factors to be “inconsequential” -- leading researchers to believe that this gap could quite possibly be unexplainable. HealthLeaders Media cited the study-- “Potential reasons that cannot be ruled out include an increase in gender discrimination and that women are not as skilled as men at negotiating salaries...” The study also looks at so-called “lifestyle factors” -- suggesting female physicians may want more time at home -- or won’t agree to late on-call hours. Researchers say it can’t be proven that’s the cause of the gap -- but say the data support the theories. OPPOSING VIEWS wonders if this gender problem just being ignored. “...the gender-based income gap is a huge workforce issue that we never really address. … It’s something we toss out to the free market, assuming that the gap will close under the appropriate conditions. Some of us may even silently think things are fine as they stand.” But women make up roughly half of the medical school population and despite the fact women are entering higher paying specialties, the gap continues to rise. So what gives? Concluding their study, the researchers say, “…policy makers, physician practice groups, and medical training programs should reconsider how they attract providers, how they construct their working arrangements, and how they pay.” Want to read more?
