Non-clinical roles of Army Family physicians in their first post-residency assignment and their level of preparedness for these roles.
A cross-sectional survey of the 1992 and 1993 graduates from Army Family Practice Residencies was done to determine their non-clinical roles and their perceived level of preparedness for these roles.
Sixty-nine of the 98 questionnaires mailed (70%) were returned.
The non-clinical roles were divided into command, administrative, committee (subdivided into hospital level and department/clinic level), and duties outside of the hospital (subdivided into military and administrative).
Twentynine (42%) had commands, 58 (84%) had administrative roles, 48 (70%) had hospital committee roles, 53 (77%) had department/clinic - committee roles, 54 (78%) had military roles, and 42 (61%) had administrative roles outside of the hospital or clinic.
The self-reported level of preparedness, on a five point Likert scale (1=not at all, 3=adequately, 5=superbly), ranged from 2.2 for command to 2.9 for administrative roles outside the hospital.
Residents did not feel adequately prepared for their non-clinical roles.
