  1. Political self-characterization of US women physicians.

    Article - En anglais

    The political self-characterization of US physicians, especially including women physicians, has been poorly described.

    We used data from the 4,501 respondents to the Women Physicians'Health Study (WPHS), a stratified random sample of US women M.D. s surveyed in 1993-1994, to assess US women physicians'political characteristics.

    US women physicians were most likely to consider themselves politically moderate (36.6% of respondents).

    More considered themselves liberal (28.4%) or very liberal (8.8%) than considered themselves conservative (20.5%) or very conservative (5.8%). US women physicians predominantly bring moderate and liberal voices to political discourse.

    Organizations that wish to attract US women physician members should consider promoting less conservative policies.
