Abstract (summary)

This study examined the determinants of job satisfaction and turnover among physicians at the University of California, San Diego. The relationship between eight predictor variables (administrative requirements, autonomy, ability to provide quality patient care, workload, work/private life conflict, pay, satisfaction with community, locus of control) and two dependent variables (job satisfaction, turnover intentions) was studied. Results indicated physicians' satisfaction with their current position was related to their perceptions of their autonomy, workload, work/private life conflict, pay, and community satisfaction. In addition, all predictors except workload had an impact on physicians' satisfaction with the current career. The only predictor that influenced the likelihood of leaving was community satisfaction. The implications of these findings are discussed.
