Physicians' reasons for relocating: 1987 and today
In 1987, a gallon of gasoline was less than $1, telephone calls were made over landlines, and when the average physician made a decision to relocate it was based on long-term goals of building a practice near quality hospital facilities in order to develop high earning potential down the road. A lot has changed in 20 years, including physicians' attitudes about medicine and their motivations for relocating, suggests a survey conducted by recruiting firm Jackson & Coker that compared physicians' reasons for relocating to a new practice or hospital in 2007 with the results from a similar survey from 20 years earlier.
