|Female Patient Preference|
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) published that as of 2009, 79.7% of the Obstetrics and Gynecology residents were female. Given the striking decline in male providers selecting OB/GYN in more recent years, it is critical to characterize patient preferences in the current environment.
Nevertheless, it is not clear that females have strong preferences regarding gender. We hope to better understand the influence of bias on physician gender in present day.
The purpose of this study is to describe female population preference based on physician gender and specialty.
The study will be conducted on an online platform distributed across the United States by the aid of SurveyMonkey® .
