PROBLEM: Residency training in many specialties has traditionally been divided into short, discrete, single-specialty rotations. Although providing the learner with in-depth exposure to a specific discipline, educators have challenged this rotational model, citing problems with patient and team continuity and maladaptive coping. Longitudinal integrated clerkships, adopted by many medical schools, offer an alternative model and have demonstrated improved outcomes for students related to patient-centeredness, advocacy, and integration with teams...

Purpose: Residency training environments can differ significantly; therefore, resident satisfaction may vary widely among programs. Here, we sought to examine several variables in program satisfaction through a survey of radiation oncology (RO) trainees in the United States. Methods and materials: An anonymous, institutional review board-approved, internet-based survey was developed and distributed to U.S. residents in RO in September 2016. This email-based survey assessed program-specific factors with regard to workload, work-life balance, and education as well as resident-specific factors such as marital status and postgraduate year...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this article is to describe how a formal mentoring program in pediatrics can prepare new physicians and scientists for their roles and conflicting responsibilities within a community-based medical school. While research supports the impact of faculty mentoring, quality partnerships are reportedly low in academic medicine and can negatively affect junior faculty who are preparing for certifying examinations, orienting to a new role and balancing career and personal life...

In any job setting, the sudden or expected death of a coworker can cause profound grief and loss. Moreover, in academic settings there are unique challenges that warrant further discussion. Given the aging of the nursing professoriate, the shortage of nursing faculty, and the medical advances prolonging our life expectancy, we can forecast a greater frequency of loss of faculty while employed. The impact of a faculty member death on colleagues, staff, and students can cause great distress and therefore requires careful attention and consideration for all...

BACKGROUND: The greatest challenges facing healthcare systems include ensuring a sufficient supply of primary care physicians and physicians willing to work in rural or peripheral areas. Especially challenging is enticing young physicians to practice primary care in rural/peripheral areas. Identifying medical students interested in primary care and in residencies in Israel's periphery should aid the healthcare leadership. It may be particularly important to do so during the clinical years, as this is the stage at which many future physicians begin to crystallize their specialty and location preferences...

The purpose of this study is three-fold: (1) to compare harassment (sexual, gender, and academic harassment both directly and indirectly experienced - i.e. "directly harassed" and "have seen or heard of someone who experienced harassment", respectively) experienced by males and females, (2) to investigate whether such experiences correlate with burnout, and (3) to explore whether social support might mitigate any such relationship between harassment and burnout. This cross-sectional study was conducted at a private university in Japan in February 2014 and is based on a work-life balance survey obtained from 330 academic faculty members...

BACKGROUND: Humanism is a central tenant of professionalism, a required competency for all residency programs. Yet, few residencies have formal curriculum for teaching this critical aspect of medicine. Instead, professionalism and humanism are often taught informally through role-modeling. With increased burnout, faculty professionalism may suffer and may compromise resident role-modeling. The objective of this study was to design a pilot curriculum to foster humanism in among residents and assess its ability to do so...

BACKGROUND: Accumulating evidence from medical workforce research indicates that poor work/life balance and increased work/home conflict induce psychological distress. In this study we aim to examine the existence of a priority gap between ideal and real lives, and its association with psychological burnout among academic professionals. METHODS: This cross-sectional survey, conducted in 2014, included faculty members (228 men, 102 women) at a single medical university in Tokyo, Japan...

BACKGROUND: The Association of American Medical Colleges reports continued low rates of female faculty as professors and in leadership positions. While attrition and discrimination have both been proposed as explanations, recent literature has suggested that women's professional motivations, ingrained behavior, and perceptions of organizational support may also play a role. METHODS: The authors employed a series of scales informed by the turnover theory (which predicts intent to leave an organization), previously validated and used in business and engineering studies, but rarely used in academic medicine...
