Thanks for sharing. I had the pleasure of discussing this with Dr. In the OR one day and read the manuscript from first draft to publication. Agreed that the perspective piece is very well articulated and commend Dr. Devon I’m discussing gender issues in Medicine

Replying to @HarrietHopfMD
Surgeon-in-chief (male) immediately identified this as gender issue and spoke with nursing leadership to resolve it.

Honestly frustrating! Equal Recognition-Equal Status-Equal Pay-Equal Opportunity-Equal Responsibility-Equal Share. STOP! This is ridiculous! It benefits NOBODY!

I’m older than most of my doctors. I call them all “Dr. ___” Respect for their role, education, importance! Deserved & appropriate!

100%.I expect to be called Dr. while at work, & am willing to pay the resulting popularity tax, which is real. Obscuring roles does not help anyone - esp young women physicians entering the workforce Call Me by My Name: Doctor : Annals of Surgery

Love that this resonates outside of medicine as I suspected it would!

And we must not forget intersectionality: women of colour, queer women, those women MDs who are otherwise marginalized but offer valuable insights on systems change, & their own lived experiences: which ultimately help us better serve our patients!

Simply balancing the number of women in medicine does not come close to addressing the cultural implicit bias that women in medicine deal with every day. Thank you Dr. Devon for this balanced and insightful piece.
