Urban and Rural Systems Associates, San Francisco, CA.
As part of a larger study of the success of women as applicants to and students in the schools of eight health professions, the study of women in medicine has three purposes: (1) to give a brief introduction to the profession, with a sense of the profession's history, work focus, organization, and women's roles and status in it; (2) to give recommendations addressing the problems women experience that are unique to the profession and that are best considered for implementation by the schools themselves or by key professional associations; and (3) by the use of extensive direct quotes from field interviews with administrators, faculty, and students, to vividly describe women's experiences that are not shared by men in the professional training sequence. Some statistical tables are included. (MSE)
