  1. Current positions of graduates of internal medicine-pediatrics training programs.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To determine what positions graduates of internal medicine-pediatrics programs currently hold.

    Design 

    A survey of the program directors of residencies in internal medicine-pediatrics.

    Participants 

    Program directors of the 85 internal medicine-pediatrics training programs listed in the 1993-1994 Graduate Medical Education Directory.

    Main Outcome Measures 

    A 1-page survey that described the current positions of trainees graduating between 1987 and 1993.

    Results 

    Seventy-four (87%) of the 85 program directors completed the survey.

    Of the 708 graduates reported on, 68% were practicing as generalists.

    The generalists of this cohort (n=480) were primarily in private practice settings (n=390,81%) and most were practicing internal medicine-pediatrics (n=416,85%). Only 12% of the generalists had chosen to practice either pediatrics or internal medicine.

    Twenty-one percent of the total graduates had entered subspeciality training.

    Conclusions 

    To our knowledge, the sample of 708 graduates is the largest survey of graduates of internal medicine-pediatrics programs to date and shows that 68% of graduates are practicing in primary care fields.

    Graduates of internal medicine-pediatrics programs should be considered as an important source of primary care physicians.
