Abstract

The article aims to analyze the inequalities in the professional trajectories of doctors and nurses in today's Brazil, from a quantitative approach that allowed for the contrast of representative trajectories concerning different positions in the professional space. The data are derived from an online survey applied to a sample of 188 doctors and 186 nurses. It is assumed that trajectories tend to differ according to resources inherited from the family of origin, higher education training course (undergraduate and graduate), type of insertion in the labor market and career internship. The methodological approach applied the combination of a Multiple Correspondence Analysis and cluster analysis. The results contribute to the understanding of how inter-and intra-professional differences both reproduce and reinforce inequalities within the professional space.
