Extract

This survey study of recent National Institutes of Health career development (K) award recipients assessed the proportion who reported gender bias and advantage and sexual harrassment in their professional careers.

Recent high-profile cases of sexual harassment illustrate that such experiences still occur in academic medicine.1 Less is known about how many women have directly experienced such behavior. Most studies have focused on trainees, single specialties, and non-US settings or lack currency.2 In a 1995 cross-sectional survey,3 52% of US academic medical faculty women reported harassment in their careers compared with 5% of men. These women had begun their careers when women constituted a minority of the medical school class; less is known about the prevalence of such experiences among more recent faculty cohorts.
