Summary: This study explored the factors that influence medical students’ career intentions in a French Medical School.
Description: French and British doctors work within the same European employment and education legislative structures. However, the undergraduate and professional postgraduate medical career structures are quite different. Specifically, career choice occurs earlier in France, postgraduate placement relies heavily on undergraduate examination performance and there is little opportunity to change speciality once qualified. This study explored the factors that influence medical students’ career intentions in a French Medical School and to compare their experiences with those that have been reported elsewhere.
