Getting to be something of a broken record, compensation and gender gap are still problems women deal with in medicine.
Medscape has just released their yearly Compensation Report. The website conducted a survey to physicians, and twenty-seven specialties partook in answering the survey. It has also disclosed the percentage of participants, in the survey, thus the study itself should not reflect the whole physician community. Doximity also made their first ever Compensation Report. The study showed that physicians in Charlotte, North Carolina received the most pay. Additionally, those in the rural areas are more compensated as compared to those living in big cities. According to the physician only website, 36000 physicians took part in answering their survey to complete their report.
