There’s Still Not Enough Women in Cardiology

A recent report from JAMA Cardiology found that women remain underrepresented in cardiology despite a growing number of female medical students and internal medicine residents. Researchers found that despite a 42.6% prevalence of female internal medicine resident physicians, women are still underrepresented in adult general cardiology fellowships, comprising just 21.5% of the pool. They’re also underrepresented in procedural subspecialty fellowships, including interventional cardiology (9.8%) and electrophysiology (13.7%). They concluded that more research is needed to help reduce barriers to diversity and improve diversity in the field. Source: Cardiovascular Business
