*Full title — Yes, I’m Really A Doctor: How Equity Eludes Women in Medicine and Science
What kind of person comes to mind when you hear the word “doctor?” If you’re given a choice in a medical emergency, would you trust the female physician as much as the male?
Studies show that many people — from patients and their families to administrators and other medical staff — show an implicit bias against female physicians and scientists, often judging them as less experienced or trustworthy. Esther Choo, MD MPH, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at OHSU and Founder of Equity Quotient https://eqmedicine.com
is a nationally recognized expert in gender bias in medicine. At this Science on Tap, Dr. Choo will discuss some of the underlying reasons behind the inequities, limitations to solutions proposed to date, and next steps to creating and sustaining diverse and productive healthcare teams.
