Women better doctors than men. Fake research?
This scholarly research found a statistically significant difference in outcomes of hospitalized medicare patients depending on whether they were treated by a male or female physician.
The study then assumes that his must be because the women are better doctors than the men!
I think it’s more likely that patients were not randomly assigned to doctors, but rather when a patient seemed to be in very bad shape, that patient was more likely to be assigned to a male doctor who was viewed by the hospital staff as more competent than female doctors. (I’m not saying that the male doctors ARE more competent, but that gender bias, which is well documented by SJW-types, causes hospital staff to think so and that influences assignments.) Or perhaps the male doctors were more likely to self-assign themselves to the worst-off patients because they liked to challenge themselves.
Without an investigation into whether doctor assignments were random, this “research” is meaningless and bogus.
As a caveat, the study does talk about randomness of assignment, but they reach the easy conclusion that they are smart enough to determine that assignments are random merely based on the statistical dataset they were working with.
