fun fact about physician satisfaction

15 Sep

Thanks Ivor for being well read and knowing about stuff:

In a survey of 5704 physicians, pediatricians rated significantly higher than internists in job, career, and specialty satisfaction.  General pediatricians are more satisfied than all other physicians regarding their relationship with patients and personal time.  (Shugerman et al. in Pediatrics Vol. 108 No. 3)

And then, according to Dr. Callahan at CHOP, pediatric emergency medicine docs enjoy the highest satisfaction of all.
