For Top Medical Students, Appearance Matters – New York Times
日本では物理的にしんどい診療科を選択する若い医者の数が減っているということが云われています。
こんな事は日本に限った事ではないというお話しです。
皮膚科、形成外科、耳鼻咽喉科が人気専門診療科として見なされていてこれらの診療科のレジデントに採用されるのは非常に競争的な選抜を勝ち抜く必要があるという新聞記事です。
” Appearance Matters”というのはうまい皮肉ですね。

Only 61 percent of seniors at American medical schools whose first choice was dermatology received a residency in that field last year, compared with 98 percent for those whose first choice was internal medicine and 99 percent for those seeking family medicine, according to a report by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the National Resident Matching Program, which pairs candidates and programs. Although there are far fewer positions in dermatology (320 residencies in 2007) than in internal medicine (5,517) and family medicine (2,603), the field is attracting some of the best and brightest future doctors.

これなんてすごいですよね。
皮膚科を望んでも61%の人しか選ばれずに他の人は”不本意”ながら他の診療科を選択しないといけないようです。

Some dermatology professors said the growing allure of their field among medical students has raised the bar for applicants over the last decade. “Dermatology has always attracted bright students,” said Dr. Harley A. Haynes, a dermatology professor at the Harvard Medical School who has been mentoring medical students there since 1970. “But now we are getting more of the brightest and the best.”

Harvardでも皮膚科に来るのは”the brightest and the best”だそうです。

ちなみにうちの麻酔科なら100%OKですよ。
