Motives influencing students’ preferences for obstetrics and gynaecology speciality: a cross-sectional multi-site Swiss study
ConclusionThis study highlighted the importance of “experiential factor” and gender for choosing OBGYN as a career. OBGYN seemed to stand between surgery and general practice from a Swiss students’ point of view. These findings provide useful information for targeted interventions to promote OBGYN at the undergraduate level. Such interventions could include providing more hands-on experiences, improving integration of male students and encouraging student involvement in patient care.
