Most physicians unhappy with their work

A survey published in the Journal of Internal Medicine (Jul 2001;16:451-459) reveals that most physicians are dissatisfied with various aspects of their work, including professional autonomy, leisure time available, time available with individual patients and income. When compared with a similar survey performed in 1986, these results show a sharp decline in job satisfaction among MDís.

In my work there is a great deal of job satisfaction, even though leisure time is clearly a problem. More and more MDís are making the switch to nutritional medicine because it gives them the tools to help people regain their health rather than just controlling their symptoms.
