Can Fam Physician. 1993 Jun:39:1356-65.


A survey of recent family medicine graduates showed that two thirds were doing no emergency work. Those who had originally planned to practise emergency medicine were more likely to be doing it than those who had not. More women than men dropped their plans to do emergency work. Two thirds of those who had dropped their plans thought their training had influenced the decision.
