    Women docs 'weakening medicine'

    I've never heard anything so stupid in my whole life! It's women like Carol Black who weaken medicine! She should be working against such people not pandering to them!

    Thanks to her, I think the progression of women in medicine has just been put back 10 years!

    I think shes telling it like it is, its a little patronising i will admit but i believe that if medicine wants to keep us all; then they need to have a little flexibility to enable women who wish to have families to continue and rise through the ranks.

    I attended a lecture she gave last year, back then she was saying that the number of females being admitted to medical schools needs to be reduced to enable the medical profession to survive but she seems to have changed her tune since then?!

    But i dont think she's affected the standing of women in the profession, I think that she's merely highlighting an important issue relating to the lack of female doctors in high places

    I FULLY agree with her... women are opting for lower positions and are not as dedicated (on the whole) as men, i suggest they make an effort to increase the number of males doing medicine as right now the ratio is just not on...
