Because of this, there has been a huge debate as to whether women are better doctors than men and vice versa.

Despite the barriers that many women physicians face, studies suggest that female doctors achieve patient outcomes that are as good or better on average than those of their male peers.

In 2013, researchers in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine reported that patients of female physicians had comparable mortality rates to patients of male physicians.

The authors also found no statistically significant differences in prescription drug expenditures, office visits, or hospital use between patients of female and male doctors.
