Choosing a Sub-Specialty: An Oral History of Women Medical and Basic Science Academicians

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



Abstract:

Although many studies have shown a changing landscape in medicine, gender hierarchy and a lack of parity at the leadership level exists. This research is an Oral History that shows how gender hierarchy in academic medicine and basic science fields is explained by an examination of the gendered processes a woman experienced in her sub-specialty choice. First the researcher asks, what influenced a woman’s sub-specialty choice? Many aspects, such as family, educational background, peer socialization, as well as experiences in medical school, graduate school, and residency are shown to be drivers for the choice of sub-specialty. A woman’s sub-specialty choice not only affects her experience as a woman doctor or basic scientist in the academy, but the sub-specialty context will shape the gendered processes in which they find themselves. To find out how women choose their sub-specialty and how their sub-specialty affected their experiences, a qualitative interview project using a grounded theory approach was performed. Twenty-six women, both medical doctors and basic scientists, were interviewed. They were asked questions about their specialty and background, information for young women professionals, the landscape of medicine when they began their careers, their experiences with and their feelings about part time work, leadership development and experiences as a woman professional, and looking back on career and personal decisions. Through grounded analysis it was found that these senior faculty women had gendered experiences and notions influencing their sub-specialty choices. Sub-specialty choice was shown to affect a woman’s gendered experience in the academy.
