UK-trained doctors' early career choices and career progression in individual surgical specialties

Abstract:
The planning of specialty training should be informed by knowledge of when doctors make decisions about their choice of career specialty. Our UK nationwide study of career choices showed that about 90% of practising surgeons had indicated their wish to become surgeons when asked during their first year after qualification. Career choices for the surgical specialties as a whole were compared with career choices for non-surgical specialties. We now report on early career choices of and career progression in individual specialties in surgery.
