  2. Most Physicians Report Low Morale, Burden from New Payment Models

    A majority of physicians look negatively at their profession and are increasingly burdened by new reimbursement models, according to a new survey. The Physicians Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that supports research on the impact of the Affordable Care Act on physician groups, surveyed 17,236 physicians across the U.S. on a variety of issues related to their field.

    The report highlighted low morale among a majority of physicians. Fifty-four percent of physicians rated their morale as somewhat negative or very negative and only 37% were positive about the future of their profession. This is a decrease, however, from 2012 when 68% of physicians described low morale when surveyed by the organization. Further, 49% of physicians reported always feeling burned out. The same percentage also said they wouldn’t recommend medicine as a career to their children.
