Professions, which have played a key role in the effective functioning of the modern world, have been criticized for many years by applying occupational closure strategies to keep women out of the occupation. Today, the barriers to women entering professions seem to have largely disappeared. Nevertheless, researches show that occupational closure strategies remain as mechanisms that are difficult to identify. The gender-based division of labor, which is seen in the sub-branches of the profession with the introduction of women into professions, is also considered as one of these mechanisms. Therefore, this study was performed in order to determine whether there is a gender-based division of labor, which has been considered as a professional closure strategy, in medical schools at Turkey. As a result of the study, it is concluded that there is a gender-based divergence both in terms of vertical hierarchy and sub-branches of the profession in medical schools at Turkey.
