Abstract

The authors examined AMA records of the deaths of 751 women physicians during 1967-1972. Forty-nine (6.56%) committed suicide. The suicide rate for women physicians (40.7 per 100,000 per year) was higher than for men physicians and about four times that for white American women of the same age. From the known morbid risk for suicide among women with primary affective disorder, the authors calculated that about 65% of American women physicians have primary affective disorder.
