ABSTRACT

Background:

Knowledge of the career paths and employment situation of young medical oncologists is lacking. The aim of our study was to evaluate the current professional standing of young medical oncologists during COVID-19 pandemic in Spain.

Methods:

The SEOM +MIR section conducted a national online survey in May 2021 of young medical oncology consultants (<6 years of expertise) and last year medical oncology residents. Using the electronic mailing available in the SEOM database, professionals from Spain were invited.

Results:

A total of 136 responses were eligible in the preliminary analysis. 86 (63%) were women. 106 (78%) were consultants and 30 (22%) were residents. 92 (68%) performed standard clinical care and 10 (7%) research activity. 97 (71%) were subspecialized in a main area of interest and almost half of them, 60 (48%), chose it because it was the only option available after residency. 75 (55%) had considered different employment opportunities other than standard clinical care and 33 (25%) showed an interest in increasing their research activity. 68 (50%) had considered working in foreign countries 40 (29%) in the European Union. The main reasons were 35 (26%) thought it might increase their professional development and 29 (22%) argued for better salary conditions abroad. Furthermore, 109 (80%) believed the professional standing in Spain was worse than other countries. After finishing their residency, only 20 (14%) were offered a job at their training hospital. Solely, 17 (12%) participants had an indefinite employment contract. 25 (18%) had previously signed a COVID-19 temporary contract. 55 (40%) were worried about their employment stability.

Conclusions:

The availability of subspecializing in medical oncology may depend on the job opportunity after residency rather than personal interest. The abundance of temporary contracts could have influenced the employment stability concerns observed. Our work contributes and is consistent with the ESMO values focused on the wellbeing of medical oncology professionals. Future mentoring strategies should engage in building a long-term career path for young medical oncologists. Legal entity responsible for the study SEOM +MIR Section.
