There is only moderate enthusiasm in the medical profession for an increase in the number of women doctors. The profession has been slow to recognize the problems of combining home life with a career, but it is encouraging that there appears to be little discrimination against women.Women doctors are capable of and may wish to rise to the intellectual challenges of full-time medicine. Unfortunately, too often the attempt at combining domestic life with a professional career is poorly organized and minimally supported leading to an unsatisfactory compromise. Until a more positive attitude develops within the profession women doctors will not feel accepted as equals.
