According to a new national study from locumstory.com, nearly two-thirds of physicians feel more overworked now compared to when they first started their careers. In contrast, only 13 percent say they are less overworked now than at the beginning of their careers.
The study found that overexertion is felt strongly across all practice types and that most physicians have poor work-life balance. Thirty-nine percent of them don't think their facility supports a healthy work-life balance.
