Women doctors still earn less than men. Why?


The number of women medical graduates might have caught up with men, but they have a long way to go before their earnings catch up.

Full-time women GPs are paid on average 25% less than their male counterparts, according to Level Medicine, a not-for-profit organisation started by University of Sydney medical students seeking to change the conversation around gender in medicine. Those who have dependent children earn 54% less.

The gap is even wider for other specialists.
