How to get a job as a doctor, even when you’re white (and male)
The U.S. has one of the lowest rates of female doctors in the developed world.
But some in the field say that’s not the only reason for the gap.
The top jobs in medicine are filled by men.
And they’re paid less.
But there’s an even bigger problem for women in the profession: Most of them don’t have the qualifications to get into those jobs.
Here are five ways to get the jobs.
Become a doctor.
It’s easier to become a doctor if you’re black.
In the U.K., women make up just 1.6 percent of all doctors and surgeons, according to the University of Manchester’s medical school.
In New York City, it’s 1.4 percent.
That means that just 7.7 percent of New York’s medical students are female.
If you’re a doctor in an African-American city, you’re less likely to get hired.
And it’s even worse in other urban areas, according the National Center for Women and Information Technology.
That’s partly because of the fact that African-Americans make up about 15 percent of the population, but only about 8 percent of medical students.
If a doctor needs to be black, she’s going to have to be white, said Dr. Laura Tompkins, an associate professor of medical education at the University at Buffalo.
Be more educated.
There are many different reasons why African- American women are underrepresented in medicine, but they all relate to the lack of access to high-paying jobs in medical schools, said Amy Davis, a clinical associate professor in the department of medicine at Duke University Medical Center.
That has a big impact on their career choices, which can lead to less-qualified candidates.
The lack of jobs and financial barriers can make it harder for women to earn a degree, Davis said.
And a lack of social support, particularly if they have to take time off work to care for a loved one, can also be a factor, Davis added.
Davis also noted that African Americans and Latinos have lower rates of college completion, which means that many don’t complete high school, which is why they’re more likely to be in the workforce after graduating.
Get a job at a big, established company.
It can be hard to land a job with a big firm, especially if you don’t speak the language fluently.
If that’s the case, you might want to consider becoming a clinical assistant or medical technologist.
Those positions typically require more training than a position in a smaller, entry-level clinic.
In addition, the pay is better.
That way, you have a career path that can lead you to other career paths, said Kimberly D. Davis, associate professor at the Sanford School of Public Policy and associate director of the Health Care Equity Initiative at the National Women’s Law Center.
“If you can get into a larger company that can offer the same pay and opportunities, then you’re going to be able to make the most of the opportunities,” Davis said, adding that you may have to move your family to get to the office.
Have the right background.
There’s an important distinction between being a doctor and being a lawyer, according Darrin O’Brien, a research associate professor and director of Georgetown University’s Health Law Clinic.
Doctors must have a bachelor’s degree, and they also need to be certified in a field like internal medicine or pediatrics, O’Briens said.
But lawyers can take a general law degree and get hired as a nurse practitioner, a lawyer who does legal work, or even a doctor who specializes in a certain area of medicine.
And since there’s no shortage of jobs in healthcare, the number of women doctors is growing, Davis noted.
Get more education.
If all that’s happening to you, you may be wondering why you don,t want to become one of those women doctors.
“I think it’s because you’re not ready,” Davis added, “because you’re trying to build a career in your chosen field and you want to know if you want that job.”
There are a lot of factors that make it difficult to find a good job in the U: lack of qualified candidates, a lack in funding and, of course, a lot more competition for those jobs than there used to be.
Davis said she doesn’t think that’s a coincidence.
“It’s a reflection of what we are living in,” she said.
“When you have this huge diversity of professions, there’s less diversity, and therefore there’s fewer opportunities to work in those fields.”
But for some, the gap in pay can be a bigger deal.
Dr. T.J. O’Connell, a doctor of nursing, said she has a hard time finding a job.
“Because of the lack.
of women, the field is very small, and I feel like I’m working my ass off, and then they
