Gender-Based Pay Gap in Urology: A Review of the Literature and Potential Solutions

Studies have repeatedly demonstrated salary-based gender disparities in the field of Urology. These disparities persist even when accounting for contributing factors such as years of experience, hours worked, and practice setting, suggesting that inherent gender bias exists. In addition to salary discrepancies, female urologists are also less likely to be promoted and less likely to hold leadership positions as compared to male urologists. We review the data supporting these disparities and provide tangible, evidence-based solutions for the field of Urology going forward.
