It has been reported that emergency physicians experience high levels of depression and psychological burnout due to night shifts and tend to consider early retirement. This study intended to check working hours and intensity, individual health, satisfaction, and overall welfare, given the increase in the numbers of emergency physicians.
The study used the results of the ‘2020 Korean Emergency Physician Survey (KEPS)’ conducted from January 15 to February 26, 2021, which targeted 2,138 emergency physicians registered with the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine. The survey was conducted online through the web and mobile application.
One thousand three hundred seven out of the 2,167 emergency physicians (60.3%) registered at the society responded. The average age of the respondents was 42.6 years, and there were 1,148 male emergency physicians and 158 female emergency physicians. The average professional experience was 8.2 years, with 325 professors, 122 commissioned doctors, 648 public servants of which 90 had military service, and 45 medical practitioners.
In conclusion, the number of working hours of emergency physicians showed a decreasing trend compared to 2010 and 2015. However, emergency physicians often expected early retirement. This suggests that, while the absolute working hours are decreasing, the actual working intensity has not decreased. For the proper development of the emergency medical system, it is necessary to establish a stable working environment for emergency physicians. A systematic study is needed on the working hours and work intensity of emergency physicians.
