Background: Reports indicate that the number of students interested in choosing psychiatry as their future profession is

constantly decreasing in the last decades. Our aim was to determine the proportion of medical students intending to pursue a career

in psychiatry and to define undergraduate education-related factors influencing that choice.

Subjects and methods: We report the preliminary findings of a cross sectional quantitative survey of final year Croatian medical

students as part of the International Survey Of Student Career Choice In Psychiatry ISOSCCIP. We surveyed medical students

attending their final year at Zagreb School of Medicine in the academic year 2009-2010, using a structured questionnaire examining

demographics, students- preferences on future career choice and their evaluations of undergraduate psychiatry teaching.

Results: The overall student evaluation of the compulsory psychiatry curriculum was -average-. Significantly higher ratings

were reported by students who felt more involved in the teaching of the subject. The possibility of psychiatry as a career choice

correlated significantly with better evaluation grades of psychiatry lectures. Furthermore, poor evaluation grades predicted a higher

likelihood that medical students completely ruled out choosing a career in psychiatry.

Conclusion: This is the first survey of this kind in Croatia. Student ratings of medical school psychiatric education and perceived

involvement in teaching appears to influence the likelihood of a stated career in psychiatry. Addressing these issues may increase the

number of students motivated to pursue psychiatry as their future career choice.
