Grijalva, Cindy A.; Coombs, Robert Holman
Aztlan: A Journal of Chicano Studies, v22 n2 p67-88 Fall 1997
Interviews with 20 Latina physicians and medical students examined stresses encountered in medical school, on the job, and from family: lack of confidence, sex bias, financial stress, poor educational preparation, ethnic bias, and cultural sex-role expectations. Coping strategies included positive thinking, assertiveness, drawing on social support, and directing energies toward community service. (Contains 20 references.) (SV)
