A new study found female physicians received less than their male counterparts for the work, such as speaking, consulting and clinical research. Ed Silverman (Pharmalot), reporting for the Wall Street Journal blog on the PLOS ONE study this week, highlights that men were paid an average of nearly $2,900 more than women for speaking, and an average of around $2,400 more for consulting. Men were also paid $15,000 more, on average, than women for industry-sponsored research.   The PLOS ONE study analyzed publicly reported financial relationships concerning 747,603 physicians and 432 pharmaceutical, device and biomaterials companies in 2011.   Click here more on this story.
