Has the Practice of Medicine Improved In the Last Two Years? Let Policymakers Know — Take This Survey

The Physicians Foundation biennial survey of the nation’s physicians is underway and now is the time to share your insights into the practice of medicine. Do you think the practice of medicine has changed for the better or worse in the last two years? The 2016 survey results showed that:

  • More than half of U.S. physicians rated their morale as somewhat or very negative,
  • Almost half said they often or always feel burnt out.
  • 80 percent said they were overextended or at capacity
  • 72 percent said external factors such as third-party authorizations significantly detract from the quality of care they are able to provide.

Review all the 2016 results. The 2018 survey is currently under way and is your chance to report back. Take the survey now! The 34-question survey asks for your thoughts on issues such as telemedicine, the opioid crisis, value-based compensation, maintenance of certification, electronic health records and the future of medicine.

The Physicians Foundation, a nonprofit grant-making organization, conducts the survey every two years to better understand the morale, career plans, and practice realities of today’s physicians.

The results of the previous five surveys conducted by The Physicians Foundation have been used by policy makers and are often quoted in the media including publications like The Wall Street JournalForbes and USA Today.

The survey may be taken anonymously, or you may include your email address to enter a drawing for a $5,000 Amazon gift card or one of five $500 Amazon gift cards.

The greater the response, the greater the impact on policy makers and the public!

Check your email throughout May for a message directly from The Physicians Foundation about the survey, or take the survey online now.
