The feminisation of medical schools in South Africa

HSRC Review - Volume 4 - No. 4 Nov 01, 2006

“Internationally, it is widely recognised that women play an invaluable role in the medical profession – being more likely to adopt a patient-centred approach and to practise in the public service, in primary care and among the poor, along with many other advantages. But they also tend to work fewer hours. For this reason, the international studies claim, high proportions of female medical graduates can lead to problems in health-system provision.”
