To analyze the factors influencing students to choose residency training in primary care (internal medicine, family medicine, and pediatrics) or nonprimary care specialties and study the combined effect of reported responses on their choice.
A 12-item questionnaire using a 7-point Likert scale was mailed to the 1,164 graduating seniors from 9 medical schools in 1991.
Responses ranged from 1, very negative influence, to 7, very positive influence.
Four indicated no influence.
The overall response rate was 69%. Univariate analysis of factors associated with specialty choice was done with the Mantel-Haenzsel chi-square test.
Odds ratios were calculated for each significant variable without controlling for other variables.
