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 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.
