A postal survey of recently appointed consultant paediatricians was undertaken to determine whether they perceived their training had adequately equipped them for their current job.
The response rate was 69% (207/299).
After excluding replies from consultants trained outside the UK the analysis was carried out on 167 replies.
Trainees held a mean 5.2 posts during general and higher professional training, necessitating a mean 1.8 house moves.
Altogether 82% felt moves were beneficial to training but 46% found moves « very disruptive » to family life.
Only 12% of district general hospital and 22% of teaching hospital senior registrars took two research sessions a week.
