The gender gap in Academic Physician salaries

The Journal of the American Medical Association published an article titled, “Gender Differences in the Salaries of Physician Researchers.”  The premise of the research is to determine whether academic physicians who perform similar work are currently paid equally.

Well, according to the data, males had a higher salary of $13,399 even after adjustments for specialty, academic rank, leadership positions, publications, and research time.  The mean salary for female academic physicians was $167,669.  For males, it was $200,433.

I’m not surprised.  Are you?

Information is gleamed from the 800 physicians who responded and fit the inclusion criteria for the study.
