Would you choose the same career? Yes, 85% of you would; and this rate has increased over three years. More than 1,200 clinicians responded to our third annual survey, asking about your level of satisfaction with various aspects of your profession. Here’s what you told us.


In this era of “burnout”—when a PubMed search of the term yields more than 13,000 results—it’s heartening to discover that 72% of all clinicians are always and almost always satisfied at work.
