Do we need more men in general practice?


Bias against men would imply equal applicants with subsequent skew in accepted posts - this isn't the case - fewer men apply currently. I don't know of any men waiting to apply who are deterred by the application process, or who have applied and have been disadvantaged by it. I think more men simply are in less of rush to engage in a training programme which, once chosen, they can't easily change their mind - they don't need the security of a training post as early.
