Why do core medical trainees break from training?

The number of trainees moving directly into training posts following their foundation training is decreasing and the same pattern is emerging after Certified Medication Technician training (CMT). Previous studies identified factors behind CMTs leaving the formal training route, but didn’t explore the motivations behind this.

Understanding the reasons why trainees take a break from traditional training trajectories is crucial in order to ensure structures are embedded to support them. In a study published by Future Healthcare Journals, Picker investigates trainees’ motivations in taking a break after CMT training and develops recommendations to support trainees.
