La féminisation de la médecine générale en pratique‎ : du point de vue des étudiantes internes en médecine générale à Grenoble, entre attentes et réalité

Abstract : Objectives: To analyze the characteristics of private practice among female general practitioners working in Isère today, and to compare it to the expectations of female interns in general medicine studying in Grenoble (France). To determine if the difference between the two groups is slowing down the younger female physicians' wish to create their private practice. Method: Prospective quantitative study which included two cross-sectional surveys. We collected 84 answers from the interns and 79 answers from the general practitioners. Main results: We highlighted a significant difference between the interns' expectations and the general practitioners' reality. The average intern wishes to set up her private practice in a rural or semi-rural area and to work in partnership with other health professionals. She wishes to work a quarter of a day more per week than what is done by the actual general practitioner, with more and longer medical consultations per day. She intends to participate in local on-call duties. She fears difficulties concerning her medical practice, as well as the lack of a balanced life style between work and family. The two groups also have some similarities: the importance given to availability for patients, and their motivations towards private practice. Conclusion: The differences we established are slowing down the younger female physicians' wish to create their private practice. We suggest that efforts be continued to encourage early medical experience in primary care, and that the numerus clausus barrier existing between the first and second years of medical school should be raised to accommodate the growing numbers of female students.
