Society is changing and students' career choices have evolved compared to those of previous generations. This observation motivated a survey of Master's students at the Faculty of Medicine in Geneva. The results reveal that among the respondents (108 students), 85% consider working part-time to take care of their family and 56% feel they have to choose between an ideal career and a family life. During internships and lessons, female students were significantly more likely than their male peers to be encouraged or discouraged to make career choices based on their compatibility with family life. These findings provide useful information about the changing perspectives of students and should be acknowledged by clinical and academic settings to adjust the framework to these changes.
