Malpractice Worry Discouraging Medical Students From Taking Up Obstetrics And Gynecology

A survey by the University of South Florida College of Medicine says that the rising number of malpractice claims in Florida is discouraging medical students// from opting for obstetrics and gynecology as their specialization. The situation means that many people do not have proper access to obstetric care. Aaron Deutsch, MD, lead author of the study and chief resident in the USF Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology released the findings of the survey at the annual meeting of he Florida Obstetric and Gynecological Society (FOGS).

The paper received the 2006 first-place resident research award from FOGS.

The USF researchers sent surveys to all fourth-year medical students in Florida in fall 2005. The senior year is when medical students find out where they will conduct their residencies – the period of specialized training for licensed medical graduates in their chosen medical field.

Florida mirrors a national trend of fewer medical students applying for ob/gyn residencies. The USF researchers hypothesized that student concerns about the rising cost of malpractice premiums and medical liability in Florida may contribute to the marked decline of students specializing in ob/gyn.

Half of the Florida students surveyed – 42 percent men and 58 percent women – responded. The respondents were divided into three groups – students who selected ob/gyn as a career (had applied to ob/gyn residencies); those who considered ob/gyn as a career but ultimately decided against it; and those who never considered ob/gyn. Of the students selecting a career in ob/
