In this episode, Dr Dante Yeh is joined by Lola Fayanju, MD, MA, MPHS, FACS, from The University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. They discuss Dr Fayanju’s recent study on imposter syndrome, an internalized sense of incompetence and not belonging. The study found that female physicians were more likely to experience imposter syndrome than male physicians, regardless of specialty or leadership role. While several identity-based gaps persist in leadership, imposter syndrome among racially minoritized groups may not be a significant contributor.
