News & Events

  • Female physicians at public medical schools paid an average of 8 percent less than males

    In what may be the largest study of salary differences between male and female medical school faculty members, researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School find that – even after adjusting for factors likely to influence income – women physicians earn an average of $20,000 per year less than men.

  • Sparing Livers

    Recently developed treatments that cure hepatitis C virus will create new opportunities for people with other liver diseases to receive transplanted livers.

  • Study finds physicians less likely than other health professionals to be divorced

    The largest investigation of divorce rates among physicians has made what may be a surprising finding – physicians are actually less likely to be or to have been divorced than those in other occupations – including lawyers, nurses, and other health care professionals.

  • HPV Vaccination Not Linked to Riskier Sex

    Receiving the human papillomavirus vaccine does not increase rates of sexually transmitted infections in adolescent females. The vaccine, which can prevent cervical cancer in women, has had a low uptake, partly because of concerns about how it will affect adolescent sexual activity.

  • Looming Malpractice

    The length of time it takes to resolve a malpractice claim places stress on patients, physicians and the legal system. The time spent with open claims may be even more distressing for physicians than the financial costs of the claims.
