Medical Students And General Surgery

- Investigator: Ralph Quillin
- Type of Study: Observational/Survey
Previous studies have been implemented through surveys, focus groups, and meta-analyses to gather insight on medical student experience and perceptions of surgery. Data shows that the intellectual challenge of a surgical residency was attractive to medical students while the rigorous schedule was a strong deterrent, especially to those interested in starting a family during residency. The concern about the ‘unbalanced’ lifestyle for surgeons has resulted in a declining interest in pursuing general surgery for medical school graduates. In this study, we aim to investigate medical students’ perceptions of general surgery residency, with specific focus on gender specific and family planning perceptions. We plan to distribute a survey to medical students across the nation to evaluate these perceptions.
