Orthopaedic Job Seekers Motivated by Geography

According to a recent survey by JBJS among nearly 100 orthopaedic job seekers, the number-one challenge orthopaedists face each day is finding a balance between work and personal life. The second greatest challenge is the abundance of administrative hassles, such as dealing with insurers, liability issues, and reimbursement. Survey respondents said that when searching for a new job, location is the most important factor followed by job security and career advancement. Responses revealed a strong consensus that a teaching/academic hospital is the preferred type of facility in which to work. The two most compelling drivers that prompt job seekers to find a new job are desire for a better work environment and finding a better community for themselves and their families.
