There are more women and a new generation of physicians entering the practice of medicine. This chapter presents pertinent literature on these two demographic shifts and on the topic of physicians’ work-related stress and coping strategies in the context of these changes within the medical profession. The authors also present data from a large-scale study that helps explore how physicians’ work-related stress and coping strategies may be similar or different depending on their generation or gender.

Keywords:   women in medicine, generational shift, work-related stress, coping strategies, work-family issues, overload, sources of support
