Women’s earnings are, on average, 80.8% of men’s (Institute for Women’s Policy Research, 2007). Despite this inequity, there are data from within medicine to suggest that careful research and salary negotiations will help to prevent inequity in your employment contract (Wright, 2007). The American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) is an excellent resource for information on physician salaries. The AAMC publishes listings of salary ranges for different job titles, specialties, and geographical areas on an annual basis at http://www.aamc.org/. This information is an important first step in your salary negotiation process.
