Latina Doctors in Southern California: Critical Transitions in College and Pathways into the Labor Force

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

While there is a plethora of research on Latina immigrant women working in factories, the informal economy and low skill-jobs in the U.S., Latina professionals, with a few exceptions, have been ignored. This research investigation is the first major comparative study of Latina doctors, one branch of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, who work in poor urban and upper-middle-class locales in Southern California. Today, less than 1% of doctors in the U.S. are of Latino origin. This longitudinal pilot study focuses on how Latina doctors narrate the process of becoming doctors, their educational trajectories, and describes ensuing race relations and interactions with coworkers and clients in their workplaces. I employ multiple qualitative methods to answer the following interrelated research questions: 1.) How do Latina doctors explain their pathways into the medical profession and; 2.) How do upwardly mobile Latina doctors navigate racial/ethnic and class boundaries with coworkers and clients in the field of medicine? This research contributes to the fields of education and labor policy by examining how Latina doctors explain their pathways into the medical occupation and how they navigate racial/ethnic and class dynamics in their jobs.
