One in Four Specialist Trainee Doctors 'Very Worried' About Future Job Prospects

One in four specialist trainee doctors in England views their future job prospects as 'poor' or 'very worrying,' as a result of changes in training and healthcare delivery, //reveals a survey* published ahead of print in a special edition of Postgraduate Medical Journal.

While the government plans to shift the focus of care, particularly for long term conditions, away from hospitals into the community, almost a third of those surveyed regarded working with patients directly in these settings as a 'bad' or “very bad” development, the responses reveal.

Eight out of 10 respondents felt poorly prepared to meet the challenge of working as specialist practitioners in the community, and wanted additional training to enable them to work in the new environment.

Three out of four felt that this should take the form of a university based degree. But even with appropriate training, only half felt that they would be better equipped to find work as a consultant.

The study authors point out that by 2010, the number of medical graduates will have increased by 50%.

Coupled with the shift of emphasis to healthcare provision in community based facilities, and a much greater focus on prevention, this will create new responsibilities for doctors and drastically cut the number of hospital based specialists required, they say.

'For many trainees, both the immediate and long term uncertainty generated by these changes has caused alarm,' they write. While concerns over consultant posts are not new, the rapid changes in healthcare provision have now eroded hopes that trainee numbers would match the numbers of posts available, they add.

In a separate commentary, the Chief Medical Officer Professor Sir Liam Donaldson, makes no comment about job fears, but says that rigorous standards will be needed to ensure the quality and safety of patient care in this new era of blurred professional boundaries.
