Female surgeons report high job satisfaction
MedPage Today, July 30, 2009
Most women surgeons would make the same career choice again if given the option even though it affected their personal lives, according to researchers at the University of California-Davis. Women were somewhat more likely than men to say they would choose the surgical profession again (82.5% versus 77.5%), the report found. But female surgeons were also five times more likely than men to forego having children and nearly twice as likely to have a first child later in life.
