Gender equity imbalance in electrocardiology: A call to action
by E Clarke Whalen, G Xu, I Cygankiewicz, L Bacharova, W Zareba, JS Steinberg, LG Tereshchenko, A Baranchuk.
Gender equality in electrocardiology: a work in progress. As more women are entering medicine, gender equality has become an area of great attention. Despite the increasing number of women becoming doctors, cardiology remains a male-dominated profession. The International Society of Electrocardiology and International Society of Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology have recently looked at the representation of women within the subspeciality of electrocardiology. A recent analysis suggests that there may be a significant gender imbalance with respect to both leadership and involvement in research in the field. Creating gender diversity in medicine, including electrocardiology, is vital as it allows for access to the full pool of talent in both genders, which will help to generate the highest quality clinicians, educators, and researchers. Closing the gender gap in electrocardiology is an important issue and will be an area of focus for the International Society of Electrocardiology in the future.
