"Non-Promotable Task Completion by Emergency Medicine Chief Residents"

Female physicians in academic medicine do not get promoted at the same rate as their male counterparts, and this deficit has not decreased over the past 40 years. The reasons for this are likely multifactorial, but we hypothesize that the burden of non-promotable tasks (NPTs), which has been documented in fields outside of medicine, contributes to this disparity. This study will measure the amount of NPTs performed by a national sample of emergency medicine chief residents and analyze differences in the type and burden on chief resident tasks based on primary chief role, gender identity, and race/ethnicity.
