6.45% of physicians plan to make career changes: 5 statistics on physician career status

The Medicus Firm reported on the percentage of physicians considering a career change or status update for the near future in the 2017 Physician Practice Preference & Relocation Survey. The 14th annual survey received responses from 2,351 medical professionals across the country.

Here are the results:

1. Definitely making a career change: 6.45 percent
2. Likely to make a career change: 10.77 percent
3. Not sure: 22.03 percent
4. Not very likely to make a change: 32.11 percent
5. Definitely not making a career change: 28.64 percent

The greatest factor that would cause physicians to make a job change or career status update is their income and financial rewards; the second leading factor is retirement. More than half of physicians in practice report receiving one to five solicitations per week of new practice opportunities. Those solicitations come as phone calls, emails or regular mail.
