Sex Differences in the Economic Advantages of Physician Board Certification | Academic Article individual record
abstract

The study of wage differentials has received considerable attention in the economic literature. Economists who have studied minority-majority wage differentials have observed that for minority workers, the earnings advantage associated with the investment to obtain above average credentials is greater than the earnings advantage for majority workers who have obtained identical credentials. However, for minority workers of average credentials or below average credentials, the effect of investment in human capital on their earnings is lower than it is for majority workers.
