Friday Cartoon – Women Make Better Doctors (Bearside Manner)

Single-panel cartoon - woman in hospital bed reading newspaper with headline FEMALE PATIENTS SAFER WITH FEMALE DOCTORS. A bear in a white coat is examining her chart. She looks up and says ‘oh thank god’.

Yes yes I had to get the bear/woman/man/forest meme in but I was listening to the Naked Scientists and they featured a piece on how women are statistically better off in life expectancy if they’ve been seen by a female doctor in hospital. Then I found a piece on how women make better surgeons than men. And with the bear discourse I just had to bring it all together.
