Factors associated with the intention to practice primary care were examined in a survey of a national sample of PL-2 residents (n=98).
Socioemotional orientation (nature), faculty and peer encouragement (nurture), and clinical experiences during residency (nurture) were independently associated with a primary care career choice.
For residents who changed career intentions to primary care from a nonprimary care preference, gender, encouragement by faculty and peers, and outpatient experiences during residency were associated with the change.
Encouragement by both faculty and peers had the strongest influence on primary care career choice for all residents.
