We determined future career choices of 222 third year medical students and found that 94.6% wanted to be clinicians. No one considered a full-time career in research or the clinician-researcher track. This highlights the need to facilitate medical students' decision-making on their career choice which would have a significant impact on the development of healthcare and its services.
