Gender pay gap exists for doctors too
Reshma Jagsi, an associate professor and physician researcher at the University of Michigan Health System, uncovered some sobering news recently. Jagsi is the lead author of a study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association that looked at similar groups of men and women who are midcareer physician researchers and found that even among these professionals, income inequality exists. The mean salary for women physician researchers was $167,669, compared to $200,433 for their male counterparts. Even after adjusting for specialty, academic rank, leadership positions, publications and research time, the study found that women made about $12,000 less than men.
