BACKGROUND: Residents of ENT were asked about their situation in residency. A good and well structured training is the key for an attractive residency.
METHODS: Between April 25-August 1, 2019, 691 residents registered with the German Society of Otorhinolaryngology, Head- and Neck Surgery ENT society were invited to anonymously participate in an online survey using SurveyMonkey® on the situation of the education in ENT and their working conditions. 25 of 80 questions were asked on the topics of structure and quality of the education in residency.
RESULTS: The response rate was 36 % (n = 249). The participants attested their further training an average result. Mainly they see deficits in the further education and training structure and culture with a desire for improved feedback and improved surgical training. Participants were more dissatisfied with advanced further training time, regardless of ownership of the institution and level of care.
CONCLUSIONS: The survey proposes concrete advice for improvement of ENT medical training in Germany. Suggestions for improvement are further development of the associated training and continuing education programs in cooperation with professional associations, structured feedback and supervision as well as transparent rotation plans and reliable working conditions.
