ABSTRACT
Before the crisis announced the Moroccan surgery, the objectives of this study were to analyze the choice of specialties newly appointed to the internal review and the guidance of medical students and to determine the factors influencing this choice. Data on specialty choice students were analyzed and a questionnaire was offered to students of Morocco at the beginning of academic year 2013-20014 The form consisted of questions on the year of study. sex, professional guidelines and reasons for choice. candidates were male, the average age of our residents was 28 years. We also noted the importance of the passage as well as external service trauma. Care provided to patients, lifestyle and income reported by 85% of respondents to be the most important factors to pursue orthopedics as a career. The TR-Orth is now a specialty that responds to a positive choice. The choice of TR-Orth by students at the end of medical school curriculum is reinforced by teaching and practicing the specialty during the internship. The overall training is unsatisfactory overall. Students would deepen in some areas. This study confirms that there is currently a shift in trauma surgery, mostly induced by an a priori negative for particular workloads.

Figure 0004: Stage of traumatology

Mentions: We led a medical investigation in 3 CHU on 45 residents exercing the specialty of traumatolgy - orthopedics. None of the respondents were excluded for a motive for an incomplete investigation as long as they have answered all the questions consequently a candidate who refused to fill the questionnaire without clear reason. The results were as following: all the candidates were male. The average age of residents was 28 years and 1 month and ranged from (25-33 years). The Candidates are divided on two groups (Figure 1): residents who answered the questionnaire, 56,5% were single and 40,5% married; it was found that almost 71% of residents questioned made their studies of general medicine at the faculty of medicine of Fes (Figure 2). The majority of respondents 87% (n = 39) exercising their specialty in the faculties of Rabat and Fes; it was not that 67%of candidates having benefited from a passage by service of orthopedic surgery during their internship, with almost all had crossed a duration more than two months (Figure 3); we also noted the importance of passing as well as external to the service of traumatology on the definitive decision of the choice of specialty 68% of group 1 we were had on training of TR-OR during the period of internship, on the other hand the majority of the residents on title had no period of exercise as general practitioner in the public or private sector (Figure 4 and Figure 5). This passage as an internal had a big influence to choose a career in orthopedics, for against 24% of questioned doctors think that they had no great interest in the point to decide to do this specialty.
