      In the dynamic world of emergency medicine, the exit of experienced practitioners from the field is not uncommon. However, a concerning trend has emerged, particularly among female emergency physicians (EPs), who appear to be leaving the specialty at a surprisingly early stage in their careers. Female EPs leaving the specialty were found to be more than 12 years younger than their male counterparts.

      However, the age gap between male and female EPs leaving the field is particularly noteworthy. Women, on average, leave emergency medicine approximately seven years earlier than men, with nearly one in 10 female EPs exiting the workforce within five years of residency graduation. This unsettling trend prompts a crucial consideration of the factors contributing to the early parting of female EPs from emergency medicine.

      emergency medicine is special from the other relationship with practice of medicine… possible they left to go to a better place in the field of medicine…i worked recently with a dermatologist who had been ENT MD previously.
