This thesis analyzes the career orientation of military physicians. Career orientation is analyzed using a logistic regression (logit) model with a dichotomous dependent variable career intention (short-term/long-term). The model is used to analyze the career intentions of four cohorts: all physicians, single physicians, married physicians, and couples (married physicians plus their spouses). The relative importance of various demographic and cognitive/perceptual factors to the career orientation decision is assessed. The results highlight potential policy variables which can be impacted by manpower policy planners to manage the career orientation of military physicians.
