Results are in! AMWA Members Overwhelmingly Support a Public Option
By Claudia S. Morrissey, MD, MPH
As part of AMWA's ongoing commitment to be the vision and voice of women in medicine, AMWA recently fielded a membership survey on access to healthcare. The survey was designed to update information gathered from previous assessments to better inform our policy efforts at this critical juncture in US history.
Of the survey respondents, the majority are physicians (69%) and physicians in training (26%); 3% are residents and 1% non-physician providers. The age of responders mirrors that of AMWA's membership with 40% 55 years or older, 31% 34 to 54 years, and 29% 18 through 33 years. Although physicians from over 20 specialties responded, the top specialties represented are Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Pediatrics and Psychiatry. Forty percent of respondents works at an academic institution and 29% is in private practice. Others are retired or employed at HMOs or public institutions.
