Abstract

Differences in the practice orientation of women physicians, particularly in reference to money and time spent with patients, is something that needs to be discussed before practice agreements and contracts are signed. Similarly, maternity leave and disability needs to be addressed in advance. One must remember that neither all men nor all women are alike, and there are many variations in attitude and expectations. Just because on-average women physicians spend more time with patients and earn less money does not mean this applies to any one individual. All practices need to be sensitive to the human needs of men or women physicians.
