I think you missed the section on implicit bias in med school, and that the first step to fixing the problem is to acknowledge it's there.

As for what caused it, it could also be a glass ceiling, active discouragement from moving forward, or the same implicit bias that is present in medicine.


Small and imperfect example, med school admissions:
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27680316/

All groups (men, women, students, faculty) displayed significant levels of implicit white preference; men (d = 0.697) and faculty (d = 0.820) had the largest bias measures (P < .001)

I guess you could say they went to the same schools, maybe are not even playing the same game, but if they are, theyre at least playing it on extra-extra-difficult mode while everyone has it set on difficult mode.
