GERVAS CAMACHO, Juan. A career in medicine from a clinical physician’s perspective. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2008, vol.2, n.4, pp.167-170. ISSN 2386-8201.

For a long time, a career in medicine has been considered as an incentive to broaden professional horizons and to improve the quality of services that patients receive (and consequently, to improve the health of the population). However, the reality of a professional career in medicine does not completely comply with the theory, and does not satisfy expectations. A career in medicine is a lost opportunity since it is not related to job changes, the differences between the autonomous regions have become greater, individual differences are being ignored, there is discrimination against physicians working for the National Health Service and the career does not have a positive impact on population health.

Keywords : Incentives; Professional develgsment; Professional progression; Continuous medical education; Primary Care.
