    Abstract

    Background: Little is documented about doctors' perceptions of developing their knowledge and abilities as teachers.
    Objectives: This study explored factors that facilitate or impede doctors to pursue Educational Continuing Professional
    Development (ECPD).
    Methods: Participants were asked to complete a 48-item questionnaire with both closed and open-ended items.
    Results: Intrinsic satisfaction from teaching was the predominant motivating factor. Obstacles included workload and lack of
    time.
    Conclusion: Doctors expect more direction and leadership from their employers. Medical degrees that prepare medical
    students for a teaching role may offer a solution for the future.
