This study aimed to find changes in the job satisfaction of emergency physicians (EP) and suggest ways to objectively measure indicators of satisfaction for future surveys.
A total of 2,138 emergency physicians were surveyed, using email questionnaires from January to February of 2021. The factors related to their job satisfaction were analyzed.
Emergency physicians’ satisfaction was low. The average number of times they experienced violence per year was 4.3±4.9 per year. Work intensity and salary satisfaction improved than those in the 2010, and 2015 Korean Emergency Physician Survey (KEPS). Health status, such as drowsiness, and depression rates, were low. Forty-three percentage of EPs said they would reapply for the emergency specialty.
Despite the increase in extrinsic indicators, job satisfaction remained low compared to those in the 2010, and 2015 KEPS. To improve job satisfaction, non-quantitative factors should be considered. It would be necessary to evolve a separate survey on job satisfaction and conduct regular surveys in this regard.
