As populations, life expectancy, and health care need grow, countries all over the world are grappling to match the need for trained medical professionals – mainly physicians and nurses. Health care has become one of India's largest sectors – both in terms of revenue and employment. India is leading the globe with regard to medical tourism. Today, the health-care organizations need to deliver care in a new quality-focused, value-based, consumer-centric environment. Health-care workers comprise doctors, nurses, and support staff such as laboratory technicians. Workforce in the health-care industry is growing very rapidly. Growth also comes with its set of challenges such as recruitment, retention, training attrition, and governance. This has put the focus on the human resource-related aspects of the health-care workers. Attrition is among the top concerns. This article focuses on the attrition of junior doctors who are one of the key people under health-care workforce and is based on a review of literature, supported by empirical information based on online survey.
