In honor of National Women Physicians Day, SixSEED Partners wanted to remind our readers on those attributes which are important to retain female physicians, including flexibility, respect and equitable advancement opportunities and pay.
Women physicians were found to be at increased risk of burnout due to their lessened ability to decompress when they returned home after work:
“A gender gap was particularly apparent when physicians were surveyed on their ability to decompress when they returned home from work. Female physicians had lower scores than male physicians on all four areas of decompression, including enjoying personal time without worrying about work (females: 3.39; males: 3.61), freeing their mind from work while away (females: 3.22; males: 3.43), disconnecting from work communications (females: 3.20; males: 3.41), and rarely losing sleep over work issues (females: 3.31; males: 3.51).”
We’d love to hear how this might apply to you. Feel free to offer a comment at: https://sixseedpartners.com/contact/
