Indian medical education system is one of the largest in the world. Although several discussions were raised in research regarding the challenges of medical education and health care professionals, few researches have effectively addressed the problems of women faculty in medical education. This study identifies the prevalence of dual role conflicts among women faculty in medical colleges. The study also analysed the quality of work life of women faculty across the four domains of medical discipline, followed by dental, pharmacy and nursing. The stress level of women faculty was also ascertained, and the root cause of stress for women faculty working in medical colleges was identified with the application of the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The MBTI analysis results suggest that women faculty are best motivated with well-defined policies and norms, significantly reducing role ambiguity, and the faculty has clarity about what is expected. This also paves the way for prompt recognition for exemplary performance, substantially reducing the amount of stress.

Abstract


Indian medical education system is one of the largest in the world. Although several discussions were raised in research regarding the challenges of medical education and health care professionals, few researches have effectively addressed the problems of women faculty in medical education. This study identifies the prevalence of dual role conflicts among women faculty in medical colleges. The study also analysed the quality of work life of women faculty across the four domains of medical discipline, followed by dental, pharmacy and nursing. The stress level of women faculty was also ascertained, and the root cause of stress for women faculty working in medical colleges was identified with the application of the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The MBTI analysis results suggest that women faculty are best motivated with well-defined policies and norms, significantly reducing role ambiguity, and the faculty has clarity about what is expected. This also paves the way for prompt recognition for exemplary performance, substantially reducing the amount of stress.
