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 0006: Factors influencing the choice of speciality

Mentions: Group 2: 75% we had passage to service of TR-OR during their training device, and all respondents from group 2 were asked to estimate the importance of training of traumatology in the choice of the specialty, with most of residents think that training 7thyear of medicine had a big influence on this choice. Passing through a device and as a general practitioner in group 2 had a great influence on the choice of orthopedic traumatology as a future career placement. Factors career choice: the questions which are asked by 17 to 20 determine the factors influencing the choice of specialty. The care supplied to the patients, lifestyle and income are declared by 85% of respondents to be the most important factors to pursue the orthopedics as a career (Figure 6). The course of the pathology of musculoskeletal system had no big influence in the choice of specialty to 55% of residents questioned. On the other hand almost 73% of the candidates see the ruling atmosphere in their service being a determining and decisive factor. We estimated the importance of income on their choice of the career on a scale of four points, 1 being the most important and 4 being the least important the quoted materiel has not been chosen by five meets as a decisive factor. However, students are asked about individuals who most influenced the choice of residency, almost half answered that the former residents in training, helped in the choice of this domain, on the other hand the skill of professors influenced only 13%; the ranking was important in the choice, the view which 78% of the candidates answered yes, against 12% say no. Finally all the residents were questioned if they are going to do the same choice, with 70% had answered yes for 30% not.
