Thanks to KevinMD who flagged this interesting journal article:  Characteristics Associated With Physician Discipline.

Can you guess which physicians are most likely to undergo disciplinary action (license revocation, practice suspension, probation, and public reprimand)?

  • Males
  • Older physicians
  • Those who trained at medical schools outside the US
  • Physicians who are not board-certified

Score one for the lady docs. Woo hoo!
