Rogers, Mary E.; Searle, Judy; Creed, Peter A.; Ng, Shu-Kay
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v10 n3 p177-189 Oct 2010
This study reports on the career intentions of 179 final year medical students who completed an online survey that included measures of personality, values, professional and lifestyle expectations, and well-being. Logistic regression analyses identified the determinants of preferred medical specialty, practice location and hours of work. Understanding the expectations and values of this generation of doctors will assist workforce planners to address expected shortages and mal-distribution of practitioners.
