US & English-speaking Canadian doctors (purchased lists); 437 respondents
Surveys and data collection
This survey of US and Canadian physicians attempted to find out more about attititudes and perceptions that might effect decisions about where & how to practice medicine, repeating a study from 2007 and adding a Web component to the data collection. The questionnaire was designed to try to better understand the pressures facing practicing physicians today by identifying the challenges as well as the satisfactions of the profession. The content of the survey addressed physician satisfaction and attitudes about the practice of medicine in general and the aspects of medicine that physicians like and dislike.
