Abstract

Although 21% of new family medicine graduates in 2016 reported an intention to include obstetric delivery in their scope of practice, only 7% of family physicians currently do so. The reasons for this stark difference must be identified in order to address potential barriers leading to family medicine graduates ultimately not including obstetric delivery despite intent.
