1 in 3 Physicians Plans to Quit Within 10 Years
Sorrell says Jackson Healthcare will continue to survey physicians to see if they make good on their threats to leave, or if they're just angry about the overall state of healthcare delivery and compensation. "It will be interesting to see in the coming years how this bears out; if really the folks who are strongly considering leaving really did," she says.
The survey also found that specialists were more inclined to leave medicine in the next decade, including:
- Oncologists and hematologists — 57% said they would retire by 2022
- Otolaryngologists — 49% said they would retire in the next decade
- General Surgeons — 49% said they would retire by 2022
- Cardiologists — 45% said they would retire in the next decade
- Urologists — 42% said they would retire by 2022
