Analysis of questionnaire data from former fellows of the two programs, who trained during the years 1978 to 1988, as well as of data from questionnaires to all divisions of General Pediatrics (or their equivalent) in all medical schools in the United States.
Surveys were conducted of the 111 graduates of the GPADP and the 39 pediatricians from the CS program and all 127 US medical schools.
Of the 111 GPADP graduates, 101 were located, and 85 completed the questionnaire.
Of 39 CS graduates, 36 were located, of whom 27 completed the questionnaire.
Similarities were found between the two groups in percent being in academic positions (74%, GPADP vs 70.4%, CS), percent having achieved tenure (17.8%, GPADP vs 14.3%, CS), and percent of time spent in research (17%, GPADP vs 25%, CS).
Considerable differences, however, were found in percent of time spent in direct patient care (35.7% time for GPADP and only 17.8% time for CS) and in direct teaching (25.1% time for GPADP and only 17.6% time for CS). (...)
