Skill Formation in the Labor Market for Physicians

This research project will contribute to our understanding of highly specialized workers labor market choices. To what extent do wages, other characteristics about the job or luck shape the decisions? And are there differences across genders? The physician labor market is particularly interesting as many societies are challenged by a lack of physicians in some geographical areas. Consequently, the post code may determine the level of treatment the patients receive. Over time, Torben Heien Nielsen's project will generate more knowledge on how to combat such inequalities.
