SWIM - Fighting the Long Fight
Over the past 25 years, women have consistently been at least 40% of the medical graduates, but they occupy only 20% of leadership roles.
At academic lectures, female doctors are introduced as "Dr. So-and-so" only 50% of the time. The other half? Called by their first name.
A study published just this year showed that the gender pay gap between male and female doctors is increasing. The average female physician makes 100K LESS than the average male physician.
ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND.
The statistics don't lie.
SWIM is here to help.
"Such equity promises to result in
BETTER professional fulfillment for all physicians
as well as
IMPROVED patient satisfaction and outcomes"
