The Swedish Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry conducted a survey among their specialty trainees in 2018. Of the 48% response rate, around 48% admitted hesitancy to continue in their chosen specialty. A further 12% planned to depart from their field after completion of training. Factors associated with discontinuation in training were the perception of ineffective psychotherapeutic treatments and a lack of autonomy at work; which was strongly correlated to the doctor's role and team collaboration. Workload was generally perceived as excessive, with not enough time for after work recovery and the subsequent negative impact on private life. However, these factors were not found to significantly affect trainees' decision to leave. The doctor's role requires better clarification and medical leadership needs to be improved, so that evidence based treatments can be offered.
