CAREER SATISFACTION VARIES BY SPECIALTY, GEOGRAPHIC REGION

Physicians who specialize in the treatment of children, newborns, the elderly and skin disorders and who practice in the New England and West Central regions of the country are more satisfied with their careers than their colleagues in other specialties and regions, according to a study led by J. Paul Leigh, professor of epidemiology and preventive medicine at UC Davis School of Medicine and Medical Center.

The finding, based on a study of more than 12,000 physicians representing 33 medical disciplines, found that more than 70 percent of physicians were "satisfied" or "very satisfied" with their careers. Nearly 20 percent were dissatisfied. Satisfaction levels varied according to specialty, geographic region, practice type and country of medical education.
