Dear Colleagues,

In an effort to promote the career vitality of all physicians and physician scientists, the American Physician Scientists Association (APSA) is jointly surveying current MD and MD-PhD program trainees to identify factors that either help or hinder their advancement in academic medicine as well as to gauge career desires of future physicians and physician-scientists. This initiative is partly in collaboration with the Swiss MD PhD Association (SMPA). By identifying these factors, we will be better able to advocate for changes that will help reduce the attrition of physicians in academic medicine as well as develop policy recommendations that would go toward making academic medical careers more appealing to future generations of physicians. Results will also be used to advocate for policies that will help ensure success in various specialties and career sectors.


Thank you very much for your participation.

Here is some background behind this survey:


• This Survey is intended to be distributed to MD and MD-PhD program trainees in Switzerland.
• The results of the survey will be used to assess the need for changes to policies/institutional structures that contribute to the attrition of physicians in academic medicine and identify factors that will help retain both men and women faculty. Results will also be used to advocate for changes to promote success in various specialties and career sectors.
• The results of the survey will be used to advocate for policies that help retain and advance a diverse academic medical faculty.
•This survey is completely anonymous and voluntary.

Collaborating Research Institutions of this Study: University of Illinois Chicago, University of Pennsylvania
