The Woman Physician: Recent Research Perspectives.
Mandelbaum, Dorothy Rosenthal; And Others
Data on the progress of the woman M.D. from admission to medical school and through practice are presented in summaries of four papers on the topic. In "Women in Academic Medicine," Judith Braslow argues that the medical school interview is particularly difficult for women and that there is a need for greater representation of women on medical school faculties. Elizabeth McAnarney's paper on "Women in the Medical Schools in the Last Decade" focuses on the dilemma of women houseofficers, contending that this group has the highest risk of developing major problems that have been inadequately addressed. In "Affirmative Deception: The Case of Women Physicians and the Computer Matching Plan for Interns and Residents," by Mary Roth Walsh, it is argued that as of 1977 the equal admissions policy had not ended the extremely negative attitude toward women applicants. The attitudes that still inhibit the performance of women physicians are examined. In "Persisting and Nonpersisting Women M.D.'s: Personality Variables Explored," Dorothy Rosenthal Mandelbaum argues that variations in practice patterns may be due to differences in personality. It is concluded that women physicians are either women focused on self-actualization through career, or women who often choose to marry and rear children as well as to work. (Author/PHR)
