    Abstract

    Introduction: Fifty endocrine surgery (ES) fellows have completed their training since the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons initiated a formal match process in 2007. This study was designed to better understand the job prospects of current and future endocrine surgeons and to evaluate the evolution of ES practices nationwide. Methods: Three surveys were conducted of former fellows, surgery department chairs, and surgery recruiters. Results: Of former fellows, 90% are working in academic centers and 10% in private practice. Average number of job interviews was 3.1 and job offers was 2.2. Eighty-eight percent have a practice that attends to≥50% ES cases, and 45% practice entirely ES. Ninety-eight percent are satisfied with their job. Subjectively, 57% believe that there are not enough job opportunities for young endocrine surgeons, and 50% believe that there are too many ES fellowships. Department chair survey showed that the average number of endocrine surgeons in their department increased from 1.3 to 2.2 in the past decade. A recognized ES section exists in 49% of centers, and 39% of chairs feel that they will need to recruit another endocrine surgeon in the next 2 years. Only 3 of 10 recruiters were familiar with ES, and all had
