Medscape surveyed more than 1,350 physicians employed by healthcare organizations, hospitals, large group practices, clinics or other medical groups about their jobs in its 2022 "Employed Physicians Report."
Here are five quotes from anonymous employed physicians about the perks of their jobs:
"I am not a businessman. I am a doctor."
"I work four days a week. I do not work any nights and have most weekends off. And I like being part of a team caring for patients."
"As a pediatric specialist, I need the support of specialized staff and access to other pediatric specialists. I don't want to have to worry about hiring, firing, finances and buildings."
"Having malpractice covered by my employer is extremely helpful, cost-effective and provides peace of mind."
"This stability is essential for my family and in theory lets me be home more with my kids."
