Factors Influencing the Postgraduate Training Choices of Medical Interns and Junior Medical Officers at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation Guyana

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.341
Synopsis: 
The information on new medical graduates’ specialty preferences and the factors influencing the choices are vital for effective and optimal medical manpower planning. Among Guyanese new medical graduates, the established specialties of paediatrics, surgery, internal medicine and obstetrics and gynaecology are still the main areas of interest. Greater acceptance of the less popular specialties should be encouraged.

ABSTRACTS

Objective: The aim of our study was to determine the specialty preferences and the reasons for those choices among medical interns and junior medical doctors at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), Guyana.

Methods: A cross-sectional study of recent medical graduates at GPHC using anonymous self-administered questionnaires.

The Editor,

Sir,

Angiofibromas account for less than 1% of all head and neck tumours and they predominantly arise in the nasopharynx (NPA), mainly affecting adolescent males. Extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma's (ENPA) are very rare with less than 80 cases reported in the literature and none arising from the external auditory canal.
