Men and women doctors trained in Britain follow similar career paths

The vast majority of medical graduates trained in Britain work in the NHS for many years, refuting claims that doctors are increasingly leaving the NHS because they are disenchanted with it, according to a study published on bmj.com today.

A second study also published today shows that direct discrimination is no longer a barrier to the career progression of women doctors in the NHS.

The findings are based on regular surveys of doctors who qualified from UK medical schools over the last 30 years.
