    Study objective

    To determine characteristics motivating physicians to choose careers in academic and nonacademic emergency medicine.


    A written survey of 1,017 active members of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine and of a random sample of 2,000 members of the American College of Emergency Physicians was performed.

    Questions were asked regarding medical school, residency, and fellowship training, the importance of specific factors in influencing career decisions, and perceived obstacles to emergency medicine research.

    Responses from nonfaculty and adjunct, clinical, and research faculty were compared using khi2 analysis for discrete variables and a four-roup analysis of variance for continuous variables.



    Measurements and main results

    Responses were obtained from 1,203 physicians (41.3%).
