  1. Female urologists : A growing population.

    Article - En anglais

    Purpose 

    Although urology continues to be a male dominated field, the participation and influence of women within the specialty are growing.

    In the United States as of July 1995,56 of 1,339 urology residents (4.2%) and 97 of 8,227 board certified urologists (1.2%) were women.

    The demographics of this group, including age, board certification, fellowship experience and practice patterns, are unknown.

    Mentorship and motivations leading to urology as a specialty choice for women are also unreported.

    Materials and Methods 

    We surveyed 161 female urologists by mail.

    Results 

    Of the women surveyed 80% responded.

    Female urologists tend to be young and board certified, 39% are fellowship trained and 22% hold full-time academic positions.

    Women were discouraged from selecting urology as a specialty because of gender.

    Many women had male (59%) or no (35%) mentors throughout the training years, 70% were married and 44% had children.

    Of the 25 respondents who had children during residency most (84%) felt supported by the program director and resident peers.

    Despite obstacles 94% of female urologists would encourage other women to enter urology.

    Conclusions 

    Female urologists are young, well educated and career oriented.

    Although most did not have mentors during training, there is a high level of job satisfaction and low attrition after training.
