Picture this: you’re a new physician, wearing all of the trappings of a physician, the stethoscope, the white coat. You walk into an examination room, where a patient is sitting on an exam table, hands folded. You introduce yourself and make some small talk. You are then asked, minutes later, when the doctor is coming.
That scenario happened to me once, and it's emblematic of some of the issues facing female physicians in healthcare today.
