  1. The impact of gender on the choice of surgery as a career.

    Article - En anglais

    BACKGROUND 

    The objective of the survey was to examine factors affecting career choice by medical students.

    METHODS 

    A questionnaire was distributed to the 245 fourth-year students at the University of Toronto, sampling qualities of importance in specialties, the importance of role models, attitudes toward surgery, and specialty match results.

    RESULTS 

    There was a 69% return rate.

    Males were more likely to choose a surgical career than were females (27% versus 10%, respectively ; P=0.01).

    Males were more likely to identify technical challenge, earning potential, and prestige (P<0.01) whereas females were more likely to identify residency conditions, part-time work, and parental leave availability as important qualities in a specialty (P<0.01).

    Females were less likely to take surgical electives (P<0.001) and more likely to identify a lack of role models (P<0.003).

    Students agreed that surgeons have rewarding careers (79%) and earn more (64%) ; however, they do not agree that surgeons enjoy spending time with patients (10%) or have rewarding family lives (5%). CONCLUSIONS : Fewer females than males were found to consider or choose a surgical career, possibly due to differences in qualities of importance in specialties, availability of role models, and exposure through electives.
