Tseng, J, (2008). Sex, Gender and why the Differences Matter. AMA Journal of Ethics; 10(7), 427-428.
The article discussed how sex and gender are interrupted in the medical field. According to the article, sex refers to the biological differences between males and females; and gender refers to the psycho-social and self-perceptions of expectations others have of members of both genders. The author feels that sex and gender should not be used interchangeably but instead on “how sex and gender together and to varying degrees influence today’s practice of medicine (Tseng, 2008, p. 1).
Identified in the article are three obvious aspects of sex and gender in medicine. The first one is the patient’s request for a male or female physician; the second is the choices men and women make regarding their career path; and the third is how male and females are treated with certain conditions such as pain management (Tseng, 2008, p. 1). Sex and gender difference don’t just affect the patients being treated, but how the practitioners themselves treat their patients (p. 2).
I am interested into going into a female dominated profession, nursing. From my experience with different genders in nursing; I have had clients request either a male or female caregiver. It seems like females would rather have female caregivers; while males don’t necessarily request a male. I wonder if that is because females have been in the profession longer than men, and it could be that females are seen as more empathetic and caring; and that is what nurses are known to be. I have also heard from some of my clients that they prefer male doctors instead of female doctors because they feel men are smarter and know more about the disease processes. I have also seen that providers of the opposite sex may not always be able to relate to their patients needs. For example, a male doctor may not fully understand all that goes along with menopause of their female patients.
I had read an article from Maria Charles (2008) titled “What Gender is Science”. That article discussed how males and females tend to gravitate towards male and female dominated careers. Such as women tend to lean towards the human resource occupations; and men tend to lean towards the more masculine careers. With the exception of medical doctors, that has always been a male dominated profession, and I wonder if that goes along with the stereotype that men are smarter and make better doctors. That is not something that I believe, however, some of the clients I care for believe that.
