MD-PhD women

The WashU Record published this article about gender and MD-PhD programs. Women are more likely to turn off the clinician-scientist path at all points after admission. The gender ratio of my incoming class was fairly even although I do not know how typical it was. I do know that the other statistics of the article ring true with my own educational experience. One obvious problem is the support for children, typically poor, during training. I do not know whether it accounts for all the discrepancies, though.
