Nearly 1 in 2 Junior Doctors Are Considering Leaving Their Profession, Medscape UK Report Finds

Aug 9, 2022

A survey of 1,012 UK doctors has found that nearly half of junior doctors intend to pursue non-clinical careers The top reason (37%) is burnout, but this is not directly linked to the COVID-19 pandemic Almost 3 in 10 respondents (29%) mentioned that they would like to make a career change, with female doctors more likely report this than male doctors (36% vs 25%) August 09, 2022 01:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time LONDON--( BUSINESS WIRE )--A new survey, conducted by Medscape UK , reveals that around 1 in 2 junior doctors (45%), 1 in 3 GPs (36%), and 1 in 4 (25%) specialty doctors were considering leaving medicine to pursue an alternative career path outside of their clinical profession. Younger doctors – those under 45 – were more likely to be considering a career change than the over 45s (34% vs 27%). “This research has uncovered some concerning realities. Given the current staffing crisis and the ongoing pressure on medical professionals to work considerably extended hours with less staff in high-pressure environments, it is understandable yet alarming that so many of our junior doctors are considering leaving the profession altogether,” commented Vanessa Sibbald, Managing Editor at Medscape UK. “It is also worrying that over a third of doctors believe their side gigs are more fulfilling than their primary role, and GPs are much less satisfied with their job as a clinician compared to specialist doctors. Our findings underscore the urgency to address the current working conditions of UK doctors so they can continue to provide an invaluable service to our healthcare system.” Are the pressures too much? Of the 1,012 UK doctors surveyed, more than 1 in 3 (37%) cited ‘burnout’ – not tied to the COVID-19 pandemic – as the most common reason for wanting to leave medicine and pursue a non-clinical career. Of note, GPs were more than three times more likely to report burnout as the main reason for waving goodbye to their profession than specialty doctors (16% vs 5%). When describing the timeframe for making the switch, 28% hoped to make this switch within a year, and a further 30% anticipate this change to happen within 2-3 years. These short timescales for pursuing non-clinical careers suggest that the current pressures of working as a doctor in the UK, in both a GP and hospital setting, are currently way too high. When asked about the alternative career choices they would consider, the following professions were cited: Healthcare business companies (33%)
