Factors influencing the interests, career paths, and research activities of recent graduates from an academic, pediatric residency program.
This study was undertaken to characterize the professional activity of a cohort of young pediatricians who completed an academically oriented residency program, to analyze factors which influenced their interests, career choices, and research activity, and to understand what steps might be effective in attracting more young physicians into academic and research career paths.
We studied by questionnaire a cohort of 150 pediatric residents from the Children's Hospital in Boston who completed residency training between 1976 and 1981.
Questionnaires were returned by 117 (78%) of 150 individuals.
Of these, 73% were in academic medicine and 37% were in clinical practice.
