Do a quick head count at your next CME program: If you're like many CME providers, you'll see a lot more men than women. But why? According to the Association of American Medical College's Women in U.S. Academic Medicine Statistics 1999-2000, the proportion of women residents grew from 28 percent in 1989 to 38 percent in 1999. The problem of attracting female physicians to CME is sure to grow as more women swell the ranks of medical professionals.
