Are there any statistics about speciality switching. I'm wondering what the most switched-into or switched-out-of speciality might be. I have heard of a lot of people switching into FM but not many out of FM. Of course, this might just be due to the fact that I often read the FM forum.

I've never seen any data regarding the numbers of residents or practicing physicians switching from one field to another. Certainly, it happens...but not in large numbers.

The "switch" usually happens before match time. This article explores why some medical students switch from family medicine to another specialty. This may be different than what you were asking about.
