Number of young female anesthesiologists increases, but wages lower than male colleagues

24 septiembre 2015

A study has analyzed a 2013 survey of members of the American Society of Anesthesiologists that found 40 percent of anesthesiologists under the age of 36 were female, a substantial increase over 2007 when 26 percent of young anesthesiologists were women. Despite an increasing number of women anesthesiologists, the study found male anesthesiologists earned 29 percent more than female anesthesiologists, with a reported average annual income of $403,616 for men compared to $313,074 for women.
