    Developing a Model Describing Voluntary Residency Attrition

    This is a study out of the Netherlands on the attrition rate in orthopaedic surgery residents. Pretty thick, but with an interesting set of quotes and examinations of the factors that interact to convince a resident that they should quit. The numbers are small - two year study, Netherlands - but have some gems like a 27% attrition rate in female residents, as opposed to 7% in male residents. Worth reading.

    This is a letter to the editor format to We noted at Challenger when working with AHECs that the residency pass rate in FM was very heavily weighted towards the larger urban residencies, with pass rates below 50% (and in some cases 25%) in smaller rural residencies. In this environment, with more pressure than ever on residencies, and less money for resources, we’re doubtful about external help coming.
