Statistics on the Number of Women Surgeons in the United States

By November 13, 2009

Follow me on:

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (11/09/09) "More women appear to be aiming for careers in surgery, long considered the last bastion of male-only medicine."

  • There are approximately 160,00 surgeons in the United States: only 19 percent are women;
  • The number of women surgeons only rose 7% between the period 1970 through 2008; yet
  • In 2008, almost half of the 42,200 applicants to medical schools in the United States were women.
  • In 2008, U.S. Department of Labor Statistics projected employment of physicians and surgeons to grow 14 percent from 2006 to 2016.

Let's hope this projected growth includes more opportunities for women who strive to become surgeons.

Following the publicity on the market several “no waste water concept” of product analysis, the purpose of this paper is
based grind through the media, Bibi Whose water is a real no-no water, whose skillful

manufacturers, distributors and consumers understand the
essence of the problem, do not do taken for a ride, do not waste your money.
A key factor that facilitates carrying out this process
is the fact that the bacteria that oxidize nitrite to nitrate (nitrobacter) grow much more slowly than the
bacteria that oxidize ammonia to nitrite (nitrosomonas) and the bacteria that oxidize carbon
and hydrogen containing organic matter to carbon dioxide and water.
