One of the pillars of the Slovene-based network of emergency services is the availability of emergency medicine specialists. Due to waning interest in this residency and the entry of new generations into the labour market, it is crucial to identify their perspectives on the residency of emergency medicine. It is vital to create an environment that will be welcoming to future generations of medical professionals and, therefore, will enable enough specialists to ensure that emergency medical treatment is efficiently provided to the citizens of Slovenia. To propose systemic solutions that would increase interest and enrolment in emergency medicine residency, researchers from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Maribor prepared a questionnaire and conducted a survey on the entire population of students in the academic year 2022/2023, as well as doctors (interns, doctors doing secondary training and in-house doctors), who have not yet taken a residency decision. The sample included 2143 people, of which 1920 were students and 223 were doctors. 679 respondents filled out the questionnaire.

More information about the survey can be found in the ADP Catalogue.
