Medical training pathways
Medical training is a long-term investment for both trainees and the government. Changes in behaviour in terms of the flow through the training pathway can have severe implications for workforce planning and service provision. This project seeks to understand better the movement of medical trainees at a critical point in their training pathway where choices are made in terms of progressing to speciality training.
This project follows on from a broader PhD research project, led by Medical Education at the University of Aberdeen, entitled ‘A mixed-methods study of career-decision making in Foundation Programme doctors’.
