From recent JAMA study, link here
According to the JAMA study, residents in these five medical specialties experienced the highest percentage of career-choice regret:
Pathology and anesthesiology, however, had a low prevalence of burnout. The low prevalence of burnout among pathology and anesthesiology residents signals that career-choice regret might be due to other factors.
- Pathology—32.7 percent.
- Anesthesiology—20.6 percent.
- General surgery—19.1 percent.
- Neurology—17.4 percent.
- Psychiatry—16.9 percent.
LOL, I wonder what these other factors are? Getting pooped on by surgeons on a daily basis? CRNAs who think they are doing a better job than you? Attending who micro manage the **** out of your case?
can you tell me what these percentages are? 6% what? 6% would not become physicians ?Does everyone know these percentages for career choice regret was in regards to whether or not "they would choose to become a physician again" in the study?
Anesthesiology was ranked one of the lowest at 6% the article says when asked if they had SPECIALTY choice regret. Whereas general surgery was highest at 17%, pathology at 12.2%, internal medicine at 10.6%, urology 8.6%, obgyn 7.7%.
