The reasons for having female medicos compared to males in the field of gynecology has many reasons, studies shown that female patients have preferred female consultant or physicians for the health issues more the males. The ambulatory survey in United States found that time spent by the male physicians with patients is relatively less with respect to female physicians. It was also found that female physicians involved in listening and counselling with less intervention for their recommendation. Even when male and female physicians spent same amount of time, female physicians have disused more time on the knowing family details and preventive measures compared to males’ physicians, and males spent more of their time in talking history .
Gender appears to play a vital role in choosing the female physicians, about 75% of patients can relate to this according to a study. Another study in the health department conclude that women trust female physicians more, compared to male, as it was known that following the therapy along with better results and patient satisfaction was considered more important which is affected by proper communication and satisfaction of patient .
The relative interest in other field of medicine making both men and women had made the gynecology and obstetrics to be less chosen field, however other reasons that makes this very important field of medicine, includes training programmes and life styles of postgraduate student, etc. Some of training programs in this important medical field has huge dropdown of male students in recent years, for example at North-western University’s McGaw Medical Center has drop rate about from 51% in 1990s to 23% in 2000. Emmet Hirsch MD in gynecology and obstetrics considered that the major part of this incidence is due to the gender related discrimination they encounter in clinics and wards by the patients and even from the faculty, which is considered quite disturbing, an illustration is when about 250 student in the gynecology and obstetrics field were questioned, about 78% of male students said that, due to the gender, their experiences is affected adversely in contrast 67% female student have felt their gender had a positive influence .
Other reasons would be due to many female gynecologist compared to male ones are working in the gynecology and obstetrics field of medicine, due to which female patients would have no better choice of option, rather going with the current trend in the society. Diversity is important in any field, however it is prevalent in the society that the women deals better with women’s problems and considering the interest of patience’s and their right to seek their own choice of doctor could be related with the fewer incidence of males physicians in the field of gynecology. Although it does not necessarily give the right to communities or individuals to discriminate the male physicians on the sole basis of gender, as we are born biologically as male and female, the latter lessons gave specific behaviour and attitudes in the life .
