Abstract

Although most surgery residents pursue fellowships, data regarding factors that affect those decisions are limited. Anonymous surveys were completed by 407 surgery residents at 19 programs across the USA. Overall, 91.4% of residents planned to pursue fellowship, but interest was lower among residents who attended independent or small programs, were married, or had children. Residents who received AOA honors or were married were less likely to choose high burnout subspecialties while residents with children were less likely to choose low quality of life subspecialties.
