The question of which factors influence career decision of medical officers in the military services provides the focus for this thesis. It addresses the question of how a myriad of socioeconomic and personal variables impact upon physician retention. Cross tabulation, multiple regression, and discriminant analysis are utilized to do a quantitative examination of the potential motivational factors involved in making career decisions. Both financial incentives and job components are found to be important variables affecting career decision of military physicians.
