Women make better doctors than men

Time, October 18, 2013

At least that's what a recent study of diabetic patients found. But the boys shouldn't pack up their doctor kits yet. In a new report released by the University of Montreal, investigators found that women outperformed men on certain metrics of patient care. Valérie Martel, a masters candidate in the school's department of health administration, Régis Blais, a professor in the department, and Roxanne Borges Da Silva, a professor of nursing, recruited 870 Quebec-based physicians—half men, half women—treating people with diabetes. A chronic condition, diabetes can be controlled only via constant vigilance to maintain proper blood sugar levels; that requires periodic visits to the doctor, and good compliance with taking a range of medications.
