 CTV.ca | Only 20% of med students choose family practice
In 1992, 44 per cent picked family medicine for their residency positions; by 2003, that proportion had dropped to 25 per cent - the lowest ever - leaving dozens of family practice residencies in hospitals unfilled this year, they said.
Those who chose family medicine tended to be older than those who opted for other specialties, with an average age of 26 compared with 23.7, the study showed.
"Students who identified family medicine as their first choice were more likely to be older, to be concerned about medical lifestyle (hours of practice) and to have completed high school in smaller communities, and they were less likely to be hospital-oriented," wrote Woloschuk and his co-authors, three family practitioners affiliated with each of the universities.
