Abstract

To identify level of job satisfaction among physicians at secondary and tertiary care levels. Random sample of 450 secondary and 523 tertiary care physicians filled in structured questionnaire about job satisfaction. Among secondary care physicians, 37.4% had extra work compared with 16.1% of tertiary care workers. More than 87% of both groups reported exposure to work-related violence. Physicians reported somewhat satisfaction for general work condition, promotion and financial aspects, work activities, and total satisfaction score with significant differences between studied groups. Significantly higher tertiary care physicians reported satisfaction with relationship in work and supervision at work compared with secondary care workers. Job satisfaction was significantly affected by age in years, number of shifts per month, years of experience, gender, being single or ever married, and having extra work. There is moderate level of satisfaction with significant differences in relation to level of care.
