Can’t wait for my 80 cents on the dollar! At least it will be more than Residency pay

“In residency,” she laments, “we were all paid exactly the same amount, regardless of our performance or gender.  That’s ridiculously naive. It’s time I finally get paid less for doing the same amount of work!  I’m lucky to even be let out of the kitchen, and should feel fortunate that someone just handed me a job.”

She graduated after winning teaching awards for the last three years, organizing a medical mission trip to Haiti, serving as chief resident, and being the lead author on several articles in high-powered female journals including Vogue and In Style.

She was hired primarily to cover intercity outreach clinics, examine “lady parts,” and to take weekend and holiday call.  Additionally, she negotiated extra academic responsibilities, including serving as residency program director, without any additional pay, title, or recognition.

Dr. Bank hopes to begin to have a family soon, which is why she feels particularly grateful she was hired in the first place.  She looks forward to the time when she can be underappreciated both at work and at home.
