Academic physicians look to leave their institutions

Nearly one-third of academic physicians said they plan to leave their institutions in the short term, according to a study published Dec. 15 in JAMA Network Open

The study, led by researchers from Stanford (Calif.) University School of Medicine and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, was based on a survey of 18,719 academic physicians between October 2019 and July 2021. The study found that 32.6% of respondents planned to leave their institutions within the next two years. 

Factors linked to this intention to leave included burnout and lack of professional fulfillment, with 37.9% of respondents meeting the criteria for burnout and only 39.3% reporting feeling professional fulfillment at their current institutions.
