HealthTechNews article Gynecologists earn more than 50% more than doctors in the US.
Their average salary is $125,000, while those of the top 10% of gynecology salaries, according to salary data company Glassdoor, are earning more than $1 million.
But this pay gap is only for the top 1% of earners.
For the top 20% of doctors, the pay gap jumps to almost $3 million.
That is an average salary of $2.1 million, according an analysis of Glassdoor data by The Verge.
It also means that the top 5% of healthcare workers earn more money than the bottom 50% of the population.
That’s a disparity that’s even larger than the pay gaps for teachers, police officers, and the average employee in the tech industry.
When it comes to medical care, healthcare is expensive.
In 2015, the cost of a hospital stay was $5,637 for a woman and $7,923 for a man, according the Kaiser Family Foundation.
A doctor’s annual salary is just $150,000.
But for most of us, the gap is even larger.
The median salary of a doctor in the United States is $100,000 and a female doctor can expect to make $75,000 a year.
And for the highest earners, the median salary is over $1.4 million.
This isn’t a new trend.
A 2011 survey by the Kaiser Foundation found that while women make up about 15% of US doctors, they make up a whopping 77% of all US hospital admissions.
Women are paid even less than men for the same work, and it has been going on for decades.
“I would argue the gender wage gap is the most egregious, most persistent and most harmful gap in the healthcare sector,” said Mark Pincus, a senior vice president at Pinca Research, which conducts research on health care, education, and technology.
“It’s the biggest barrier to opportunity for women, and for people in underserved areas, it’s just a huge problem.”
Women have to compete for a shrinking number of jobs, and in the process they are paid less for the work they do.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women earned 77 cents for every dollar earned by men in the year 2014, and are expected to earn only 78 cents for the year 2020.
And the gap has gotten worse since then.
In 2020, for instance, women made 77 cents on the dollar compared to 79 cents for men.
The gender pay gap also varies across different professions.
The American Medical Association recommends women receive at least 40% of their salary for equal pay.
But the pay equity bill that was approved by Congress last year requires that the pay differential be at least 50% for all medical professionals.
And that’s just not happening.
Women have been paid less than male doctors in other professions for decades and have been in the minority in medical science for decades, according Pincanus.
He added that the wage gap will likely grow even more in the future, as more women enter the field.
And this is only the tip of the iceberg.
“The reality is that the gaps are very large and will be persistent for decades,” Pincas said.
“We’re talking about the fact that when a woman is doing surgery, or a woman has an operation, she is expected to take care of her husband, who will be expected to pay for the cost.
It will continue to grow, it will continue.”
For the bottom half of healthcare professionals, the gaps between men and women have gotten even worse.
The United States Census Bureau found that women earn 74 cents for each dollar earned per man in 2016, and that women make just 77 cents per dollar earned for the entire population.
This disparity has been largely ignored in discussions about the pay inequities.
This is partly because healthcare has traditionally been seen as an occupation for men and a career for women.
“Women have traditionally been in medicine and have traditionally had to work as a caregiver,” Pinsci said.
This has not changed, however.
“This is a new reality for women in healthcare.
And it is not going to change.”
Women are also more likely to be hired by hospitals, hospitals are expected by the Census Bureau to have a higher percentage of women on their rosters than doctors.
And although women have historically had more control over medical decisions, they still tend to have fewer decisions made for them than men.
In 2016, only 17% of hospital staff members were women, compared to 43% of physicians.
It is also still not the case that female doctors and nurses are treated differently than male colleagues.
This gap, which is not as big as it might appear, is largely a function of the way women are treated.
“There are more opportunities for women to make more than men, and women still tend not to be as empowered or as respected as men,” said Dr. Linda Kocher,
