Results: When the factors that affects participants working life is examined, the rate of people who wants to work continuously in primary care centers is 9.2% (n=14). When first graders and new graduates are examined whether they want to work in other institutions except Turkish Armed Forces (TAF), a significant difference is observed (p<0.001). When the reasons of choosing medical faculty such as the dignity of profession of a doctor and high income are compared between the first graders and new graduates, a significant difference is observed (p=0.031 and p<0.001). Conclusion:The reason for the high rate of new graduates who want to work in other institutions is estimated as the opportunity of comparing civil and military health care system throughout of their education life and accordingly civilian physician is more attractive than military physicians to them. Military primary care centers have hard working conditions than non-military primary care centers.
