1 Diversity Resources and Data Snapshots February 2012 Edition Diversity Policy and Programs & the Center for Workforce Studies

2 AAMC’s Center for Workforce Studies conducted a series of analyses focusing on physician race and ethnicity with data from its Surveys of Physicians Under and Over 50 (two nationally representative sample surveys conducted in 2006). The second of three installments in the Diversity Resources and Data Snapshots series featuring this research, results reported here focus on physician satisfaction. Physician Workforce Research: Focus on Physician Race and Ethnicity

3 Overall, physicians in the U.S. are satisfied with their careers in medicine, regardless of race and ethnicity. Among older and younger physicians, Blacks/African Americans are more likely to leave medicine if they could afford it. Financial status is the only factor significantly related to physician satisfaction for all race and ethnicity groups. Physician Race & Ethnicity: Professional Satisfaction

4 Older physicians more satisfied with their careers, except Blacks/African Americans (2006) * * Notes: 1) Native American, Multiple Races & others excluded due to small numbers; 2) NH = non- Hispanic/Latino; 3) Physicians are active, patient care only

5 Black/African American physicians most likely to leave medicine if they could afford it (2006) * * Notes: 1) Native American, Multiple Races & others excluded due to small numbers; 2) NH = non- Hispanic/Latino; 3) Physicians are active, patient care only; 4) Percentages exclude “Don’t know” responses
