Half of medical school graduates are women, but female doctors experience significant professional tensions. Low numbers of women in leadership roles, high burnout and attrition, and continued harassment suggest a culture that undermines the contributions of women. This manuscript explores research from sociology, business and medicine through a personal lens. Understanding the way gender influences the complex state of women in medicine suggests changes are needed in the architecture of the modern medical workforce. Individuals, mentors and organizations can make changes that would improve the way that the working environment cultivates a diverse workforce to reach its full potential.
