Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection contains information on the practices of young internists in order to understand the determinants of different practice styles, especially the relationship between training and practice, and to compare the practices of four groups of physicians: (1) general internists with traditional residencies, (2) general internists who received their residency training in special primary care tracks, (3) family physicians, and (4) subspecialty internists. The study queried a national sample of residents and fellows who were in training during 1976-1977 about their current positions, activities, patients, physician-patient relationships, family backgrounds, and educational training histories. Patients of these doctors were also surveyed. Demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, race, educational level, work status, marital status, and income, were recorded for the patient respondents. Background information on physicians includes family, educational history, and income.
