Anaesthesia, while still popular for core training, is facing difficulties with retention at higher levels of training with adverse impacts on workload demands, time available for educational opportunities and training, and serious consequences for service delivery. UK recruitment is currently 100% for core training
but falls to 89% at ST3 level. In Scotland, recruitment at ST3 was only 60% in 2013/14 [1]. This suggests influences during core training relevant to future recruitment. In order to attract and retain trainees, it is essential to identify those factors which attract trainees to anaesthesia and those within training posts which may influence retention.
