Abstract

Background: The global shortage of health human resources has created a challenge for health human resource management. High-level medical talents play a critical role in promoting medical technology reform and improving the level of medical and health services. To maintain their occupational stability and reduce their turnover intention, it is necessary to address various factors that regulate and affect their decision to leave their job. This study aims to explore the relationship between turnover intention and major match, as well as job content plateau, among high-level medical talents. It is hoped that the findings of this study will provide insights into the effective management of health human resources and the retention of high-level medical talents. Method: Using the convenience sampling method, 208 high-level medical talents were investigated through the internet questionnaire. Descriptive statistical analysis was conducted using SPSS 26.0 software, and a structural equation modeling was established using AMOS 28.0 software. Results: The findings revealed that 42.31% of high-level medical talents reported a medium to high degree of turnover intention. The mean score of job content plateau was 1.832±0.755, while the mean score of major match was 2.569±1.12. Conclusion: Major match positively affected job content plateau and indirectly influenced turnover intention of high-level medical talents, while job content plateau had a positive impact on turnover intention. It is recommended that measures such as project teams and more academic exchange activities be taken to control the job content plateau and reduce the turnover intention of high-level medical talents.
