In the article titled “Factors Associated With General Surgery Residents’ Desire to Leave Residency Programs: A Multi-institutional Study,” published online July 30, 2014, in JAMA Surgery (doi:10.1001/jamasurg.2014.935), an incorrect word in the Abstract and Results sections gave the opposite interpretation of the study’s data from the univariate analysis. In the Results portion of the Abstract, “the absence of a faculty mentor” should have appeared as “the presence of a faculty mentor.” Likewise, in the Desire to Leave Residency subsection of the Results section, the first sentence of the third paragraph should have appeared as “On univariate analysis, factors that were significantly associated with the consideration to leave residency were older age, female sex, PG year, training in a university program, lack of Alpha Omega Alpha status, and the presence of a faculty mentor (Table 2).” This article was corrected online and in print.
