Description

Data from the 2004 National Physician Survey were used to determine when current Canadian radiologists made their decision to pursue a radiology career and to determine which factors were most influential in their decision. Most respondents reported having made this decision during their clerkship years of medical school (32.7%) or after a period of time in practice (25.4%). The most influential factors involved in this decision were perceived intellectual stimulation and workload flexibility or predictability. These results provide insight into the trainee's decision to pursue radiology and may be useful to those recruiting for radiology as well to medical students considering the field.
