Physician executives report high job satisfaction. Summary of findings from a survey of senior physician executives.Physician Exec. 2001 Jul-Aug; 27(4):46-7.PE
The role of the senior physician executive is well established in American hospitals and health systems. There is little research, however, on overall physician executive job satisfaction, their perceptions of their organizational role and job performance, or their views of the medical staffs with which they work. A recent survey of physician executives examined these and other areas. It found physician executives to be quite satisfied with their jobs. What follows is a summary of the findings. An article based on the survey will be featured in a future issue of The Physician Executive.
