Are Female Doctors "better"?

This remarkably empty-headed article appeared quoting extensively from Canadian research in TIME Online recently.  The comments are the best part as they have easily deconstructed most of the arguments presented.

But it also seems to me to be a Feminist assault on the fairly well documented data that suggests Canadian Healthcare is facing a "manpower" shortage as the increasing number of female doctors can't keep up with the workload left behind by all the old retiring male docs.

There have been other attempts - but I find them unconvincing (again look at the commentary to see some of the best rebuttals of the articles main points - mostly it's apples to oranges).
