Study Shows Patients Treated By Female Doctors Have Lower Mortality Rates

A recent study sheds light on the positive impact of female doctors on their patients’ health outcomes. According to the research findings, patients treated by female doctors have a lower likelihood of mortality compared to those treated by male doctors. 

A recent study suggests that patients treated by female doctors have a lower likelihood of being readmitted to the hospital.

Research conducted by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) indicates that the treatment provided by female doctors benefits the health of female patients more than that of male doctors.Published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the study found that the mortality rate among patients cared for by female doctors was 8.15%, compared to 8.38% among patients treated by male doctors. Researchers noted the clinical significance of this difference.

Furthermore, the study revealed that the mortality rate among male patients treated by female doctors was 10.15%, which is lower than the 10.23% rate among patients treated by male doctors.

Researchers also observed a similar trend in hospital readmission rates.

Assistant Professor Tsugawa stated, “Our study’s findings demonstrate that male and female physicians practice medicine in different ways, and these differences have a significant impact on patient health outcomes.”

After listing various factors that could contribute to differences between male and female doctors, researchers suggested that this gap may be related to male doctors underestimating the severity of health issues in female patients.
