Physician satisfaction, professional characteristics and behavior formalization in hospitals.
In this paper, an analysis is presented of professional and bureaucratic predictors of physician satisfaction.
Results from 210 physicians in 17 medical departments of university hospitals support the hypotheses that both professional attitudes and formal structuring of work activities have a positive effect on physician satisfaction.
It is shown that behavior formalization, preference for professional autonomy and the time spent on patient care activities within medical departments are positive predictors of satisfaction with work environment, while « traditional » professional attitudes like craftsmanship and client service have more impact on satisfaction with patient demand.
