The training to the doctor or to the Doctor is expensive: Depending on the estimation of the public, between several hundred thousand and half a Million Swiss francs pays up to the state exam per place of study. At the same time, many worry because of the increasing number of Doctors coming to Switzerland. In Zurich, according to "day eight-Gazette" of yesterday, the share of foreign specialists in eight years, to 23 percent, tripled. In Neuanerkennungen foreign accounts are no longer in the Majority.
"Especially in times of a shortage of certain specialist doctors, any Person who leaves the profession is too much."Sven dispute, a researcher at the Institute for family medicine of the University of Bern
Against this Background, a recently published study in the journal "Swiss Medical Weekly" sit up and take notice. Accordingly, each of the seventh doctor, and every seventh Doctor, sooner or later, from the profession is increasing in Switzerland. That's the equivalent of almost 14 per cent of the trained doctors , the stop treating patients. This is the result of researcher Sven Streit from Berne Institute of family medicine (Biham), University of Bern, after they had analyzed 23'000 professional register entries at the Federal for the years 1980 to 2009. In a sample of 500 people you researched additional information about the professional activity.
"Especially in times of a shortage of certain specialist doctors – family doctors, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and others – is any Person who leaves the profession, a lot," says strife. Perhaps the most remarkable result of the study is that women get off more often than men. This refutes the prevailing view that Doctors do not bring more work and family under a hat, and therefore stop. Also between the language regions, the Bernese will find no differences. Significantly, however, is the increase in drop-outs over the years. The doctors ended the study in 1980, stopped up to four times less likely than those with completion year of 2005.
Coveted places to study
The reasons for the withdrawal were not obtained from the study. On the basis of other investigations, a dispute is called as the most common causes are: family and personal problems, long working hours, changes in requirements – for example, a shift to more administrative tasks instead of clinical work. A survey of Swiss doctors link FMH and the Association of Swiss assistance and senior physicians (VSAO) in the year 2016 showed. They came up with around 10 percent to a slightly lower exit rate. However, the return was at the time of survey, only around 35 percent, which is likely to have distorted the results in comparison to the current study.
Laila Burla, scientific project Manager at Swiss health Observatory Obsan, finds the Bernese study well and convincingly. Interesting is the finding that women get off more often than men. "Probably women already know very well what to expect if you opt for the medical profession," says Burla. The expert was involved in 2016, in the case of a large proportion of the variables analysis, in accordance with the each of the third physician drops out completely, the profession or the industry changes. The extent to which the high number of reality, however, is questionable. "There is, unfortunately, up to now, in the health area, there are no good Figures for the vocational exit," says Burla.
Regardless of how many Doctors get off exactly: critics you are a thorn in the eye. The money was incorrectly invested, and the drop-out would have taken away from the other, consent to the prospective buyers one of the coveted places, which are limited by the Numerus clausus. Obsan expert Burla emphasized, however, that the dropouts were not lost to society: "doctors, in the research or pharmaceutical, need it also." It is usually so that you will by the doctor to the artist. In addition, there is in all Professions fluctuations, in many places higher than the doctors. "It becomes problematic to stop, in my view, first," said Burla, "if the people as a result of working conditions, although they would actually like to stay in the profession."
compatibility with family
Also the author of the study dispute regrets that exits occupations may not be in health better post. "If we had this possibility of intervention could be to reduce the withdrawal rates tested," says the doctor of medicine, Professor. Possible measures include Mentoring, Career Coaching, Burn-out prophylaxis, improvement of the compatibility of work and family are:.
"From a practical perspective, we must look to it that it comes to an exit," says Streit, who is also the house physician. "Again, beginners and returners have a hard time to make it all the way back to the clinic," he says. That's why it appeals especially to promote family-friendly working models.
