UK doctors debate male-female practice styles
In an article for the British Medical Journal, Brian McKinstry, MD, said female doctors were more likely to work part-time, which leads to staffing problems. Women now outnumber men in medical schools, and were also less likely to take part in training or research, McKinstry added. In response to the article, opponents said the best candidates should be chosen regardless of gender and there should be more focus on ensuring equal opportunities for medics throughout their careers.
