Will Women Ever Break the Glass Ceiling in Medicine?

Achkar, Edgar, M.D., F.A.C.G.

American Journal of Gastroenterology: July 2008 - Volume 103 - Issue 7 - p 1587–1588

Increased attention is being paid to women's working conditions in medicine. Few data are available regarding gender disparity in gastroenterology. It seems, however, that in general women are paid less than men and that their progress in academic practice tends to be slow. The GI community needs to recognize that gender disparity is not an imaginary issue and that action is necessary to attract women to gastroenterology by providing equal opportunities.
