Pay gap for women doctors increases to $50,000 a year

Bloomberg, September 3, 2013
Female physicians in the U.S. continue to earn less than their male counterparts, with the pay gap widening during the past two decades to more than $50,000 annually in 2010, researchers said. Women doctors had a median annual income of $165,278 from 2006 to 2010, compared with yearly earnings of $221,297 for male physicians, according to the report published today in JAMA Internal Medicine. While the annual pay for women doctors has increased since the median of $134,995 in 1990, it's only now beginning to approach the $168,795 annually earned by men 20 years ago, the researchers found.
