Quels sont les facteurs déterminants de l'installation en Corse des futurs médecins spécialistes ou généralistes issus de la première année de médecine de la Faculté de Corte

Abstract : Introduction: Corsica is currently facing a medical shortage, which is getting worse by the unceasing aging of medical workforce. At the same time, newly graduated doctors having studied at the University of Corte during their first year just completed their studies and some of them settled back in Corsica. A fundamental question is raising up to help solving the issue of medical workforce deficit: "What are the determining factors for future medical specialists or general practitioners who studied their first year at the University of Corte to settle back and start working in Corsica?” The objective of this study has been to search, analyze and prioritize those predisposing elements relevant for settlement in Corsica. Tools and methodology: The considered population are graduates that studied during their first medical year at the University of Corte, from program year 2004-2005 to 2009-2010. A cross-sectional, quantitative and descriptive study was conducted via an online questionnaire. Results: Among the 118 doctors of the population in scope for the study, 105 of them were interviewed and 104 responded to the questionnaire. The statistical analyzes highlighted the prevalence of each determining factor and helped classifying them in priority order. Discussion: This ranking reveals main relevant factors like family closeness and personal connection to the territory as well as Corsica replacements, the role of the spouse and internships handled in Corsica. The personal connection to the territory has never been pointed out in any other similar national or regional study before and seems to be specific to Corsica. Conclusion: The revealed determining settlement factors should encourage increasing the number of settlements in Corsica for these young doctors. A specific student selection during the first year enrollment at the University of Corte as well as planning the internships to be located in Corsica could especially make this achievement come true.
