Women Doctors’ Effect on the Health Care Industry

Last post of the day, a link to a post by Drezner on what happens when women become doctors?Okay, he’s just linking too, but here’s a chunk of a quote from the original:

With women becoming doctors in ever-increasing numbers, medicine is generally becoming more patient friendly, treatment is improving and malpractice suits may become less common, experts say.

But, they add, the feminization of medicine is helping to lower physician salaries, encourage part-time doctoring and exacerbate a looming shortage of physicians.

Interesting stuff, but as comments note, it’s not the whole story.
