Women in Medicine News

When assessing gender differences in pay, workload, performance and organizational issues women get the “short stick”. The perceptions of women toiling less at the job and making less money is unfair and misguided. Understanding these societal mores is important to help everyone work more productively at their profession and this is especially true in medicine and thus rheumatology.

Redirect your energy with these insights in this edition of the AWIR newsletter.

For reasons we can't always put our finger on, some people just seem to have a knack for making us feel uncomfortable. Maybe it's their attitude or tone of voice. It could be a strange feeling we get when we're in their presence. Or we might have an unpleasant history with them that leaves us walking on eggshells every time we find ourselves in the same room. - See more at: http://www.physicianspractice.com/patient-relations/dealing-aggressive-patient?GUID=FF78800C-D067-4D0A-8B92-72CC39CED54C&rememberme=1&ts=07012016#sthash.HltS4XfV.dpuf
