Summary Points from Burke and White (2001) “The wellbeing of gay, lesbian, and bisexual doctors” British Medical Journal; 422-425.

1. While research has investigated doctors’ attitudes towards homosexual and bisexual patients, relatively little attention has been paid to gay, lesbian, and bisexual doctors. 2. The factors most likely to affect the wellbeing of such doctors are homophobia, discrimination, the challenges of medical school and residency, and lack of support systems. 3. Gay, lesbian, and bisexual doctors experience verbal harassment or insults from medical colleagues, and many believe that they risk losing their job if colleagues discover their sexual orientation. 4. Although the situation has improved, more needs to be done to enhance the wellbeing of gay, lesbian, and bisexual doctors.
