Recently, I made a post about male/female hotness vs. residency match. I expected a bunch of people to get offended by this, but strangely enough, only like one person said, "Hey, I'm hot and this is offensive!"
Anyway, someone wondered what the correlation might be for AOA (honor) students. So I decided to take a look at this as well for my class:
Junior AOA males (4): Plastic surgery, Radiology, Ortho, Derm
Junior AOA females (1): Gen surgery (but wanted plastics)
AOA females (6): Gen Surgery, Psychiatry, OB/GYN x 2, Anesthesia, Pediatrics
AOA males (8): Anesthesia, Ortho, Derm, IM x 2, Urology, Pediatrics, Otolaryngology
So we can draw the following conclusions:
1) Males are more likely to be AOA
2) AOA males tend to match in more competitive fields than AOA females
3) Medical training is obviously totally sexist.
Also, I found it interesting that I wrote down some guesses for AOA at the end of third year and only 4 out of 15 guesses were correct. I'm not sure what that means.
Anyway, good look on the match!
