The training, employment, and career movement of doctors is of fundamental concern to all those working in and administering the National Health Service and private medicine within Britain and around the world. "Doctors' Careers" makes available to a wide readership the results of a comprehensive survey of medical choices and career progress of doctors qualifying from British medical schools during the decade from 1974-1983. The first survey of its kind, it records the aspirations, feelings, and experiences of a large group of doctors during a time of considerable change in emigration, training for general practice, and the position of women doctors.
Topics dealt with include the reasons for choosing and changing careers within medicine, postgraduate qualifications, internal migration of doctors within the U.K., aspects of specialties such as medicine, surgery, psychiatry, and anaesthetics, and the personal opinions of doctors regarding their training and career problems. This study will be of interest to doctors, educators, health service planners, and social scientists in many countries where similar problems and experiences are encountered.
