Physicians consider many aspects of a location before choosing to settle in and practice medicine there, but they find some traits more important than others, according to results from a Medscape survey.

The following are the factors physicians value most in a practice location, according to the survey:

•    Comfortable, enjoyable living environment: 69 percent
•    Family and friends live nearby: 45 percent
•    Relative value of my specialty: 39 percent
•    Climate or temperature: 34 percent
•    Job opportunities: 31 percent
•    Malpractice climate and premiums: 24 percent

The survey includes responses from more than 1,000 physicians. Respondents were asked to make multiple choices, so percentages add up to more than 100.
