Facteurs influençant positivement l'installation en médecine générale libérale chez les internes et les jeunes médecins récemment installés en Rhône-Alpes

Abstract : Private practice is not popular among residents, referring to the small number of those who choose in private practice after graduating their MD. However, young general practitioners are not strictly against this kind of practice. This study aimed at pointed out factors that had a positive impact on the wish to settle in private practice among residents and junior general practitioners. A qualitative study was conducted, using focus groups for general medical practice residents and individual interviews with physicians who recently settled in the Rhone-Alpes region. Interviews were designed to obtain maximum variation and following an interviewer's guide, until saturation of data. Nine physicians and 28 residents have been included from April through December 2012. The analysis brought up five themes : the role of practical internships to acquire decisional and technical skills, the contribution of replacements in the choice of future mode of practice, the role of personal history and family projects, the specific qualities of group practice, combining modularity and versatility, and the appealing function of family doctor, in charge of public health in an area. All these themes make private practice acceptable, if an opportunity exists. Among those factors, many can be used for changing teaching methods and legislative framework. Residents and young general practitioners have positive opinions and good experiences about private practice in primary care. Pointed out factors must become part of medical training, in order to promote the culture of private practice among future general practitioners.
