Gender in Surgical Demographics

Posted by medliorator on August 20, 2008

Women now account for more than 50% of American medical students, but only 10% of neurosurgery residents.

part of the reason more women aren’t going into neurosurgery is because there aren’t more women in the field to serve as mentors and role models. Women account for less than 6% of the neurosurgery ranks.
