Lifestyle as a Factor in Medical Students' Career Choices—Reply

JAMA. 2003;290(22):2940-2942. doi:10.1001/jama.290.22.2940-a

To the Editor: Dr Dorsey and colleagues1 found that lifestyle was a stronger predictor of recent changes in US medical students' career choice than were duration of residency training, anticipated income, and work hours. Although the authors found that student interest in anesthesiology appeared to increase dramatically during the past 6 years, this may be explained by other factors they did not include in their statistical model.
