  1. aThe exact number of OB/GYN and ENT female and male chairs was only obtainable for 2013. There are slight aberrations possible in each of the other time points since it was not possible to find exact records, when the ENT and OB/GYN appointment procedures of vacant chairs were completed in each year and chair was finally occupied by a male professor. Therefore, a number of 36 (all faculties had a chair) was used and the numbers of female chairs were subtracted. Physician numbers retrieved from [25]
