Internal medicine is a specialty that offers a wide variety of career options in terms of practice setting as well as clinical subspecialty. To ensure the relevance of postgraduate training, it is important to seek input not only from current residents but also from recent graduates of the program. To this end researchers conducted a survey of all residents who completed core internal medicine training at the University of Toronto over a 10-year period, primarily to gather data on practice address, practice setting, clinical subspecialty, timing of the career decision and satisfaction with practice. Secondary objectives included self-evaluation of their preparedness for practice upon completion of training, and identification of factors that influenced their choice of career. The study was predominantly descriptive.
