Objective A national survey of women surgeons in Canada was undertaken to evaluate their ability to combine career with personal and family life.
Summary Background Data Despite increasing numbers of women entering the medical profession, women continue to select nonsurgical careers.
Although there are many reports regarding women in medical specialties there is little information available regarding women who choose surgical careers.
Such data will be useful in increasing the enrollment of women in surgical training programs.
Methods A 93-item questionnaire was mailed in July 1990 to the 459 eligible female surgeons.
The survey was conducted using a modified Dillman 5-step computerized method.
