Male physicians earned an average of 25.3% more pay than their female counterparts from 2006 to 2010, an increase from the 16.3% advantage between 1996 and 2000, Harvard researchers wrote in a research letter in JAMA Internal Medicine. Dr. Molly Cooke at the University of California, San Francisco, commented that the difference is huge over a professional lifetime and said there "is no good reason for why this inequity persists among physician[s] and other healthcare professionals."
