Former ACOG president Dr. Frank C. Miller said at a press conference during the ACOG annual meeting that currently about a third of the nation's 40,000 ob/gyns are women."But right now about two thirds of ob/gyn residents are women, so by the year 2012 we predict that half of the nation's ob/gyns will be women," said Dr. Miller, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine.He
foresees that not long after that, the specialty "will probably be two thirds women."
...Dr. Miller said ACOG asked The Gallup Organization to produce a survey that would serve as a report card for the College as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.He
was surprised by the very positive responses of the women.For example, 93% said they would recommend their physician to a friend.
The women were asked to rate their physicians using grades A to F, with "F" being a failing grade.Dr. Miller
said 65% gave their physicians an A for overall performance and 26% gave them a B. Only 1% gave the doctors a failing grade.
