Preferences for Working in Rural Clinics Among Trainee Health Professionals in Uganda: A discrete choice experiment

The article is an investigation regarding preferences for job characteristics among final year medical, nursing, pharmacy, and laboratory students at select universities in Uganda. Participants were administered a cadre-specific discrete choice experiment that elicited preferences for attributes of potential job postings they were likely to pursue after graduation. Salary, facility quality and manager support were the attributes that affects almost all student-groups’ job posting choice. The findings contribute to mounting evidence that salary is not the only important factor health workers consider when deciding where to work.
