Question normal

Imagine if all trainees were given leave to care for children? It is interesting to consider how much unconscious bias contributes to employment differences for men and women - particularly the subconscious awareness that a female trainee may take time for pregnancy, children and family. Encouraging male doctors to take a prominent role in families, caring for children and babies, could make a significant difference in employment conditions for us all.

In Australia the short-term (one year) employment contracts likely work against this approach. Is this a problem across the world?
