Family physician job satisfaction in different medical care organization models.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to estimate physician job satisfaction at the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS), the Ministry of Health ( SSA) and in the private sector, and to measure the association between these different family medical care organization models. METHODS: A comparative cross-sectional design was used to investigate the job satisfaction of family physicians in private and institutional family medicine clinics. Satisfaction was measured with a previously constructed and validated instrument. The instrument measures the satisfaction in four areas: 'global satisfaction', 'institution where the physician works', 'the patients' and 'themselves as physicians'. RESULTS: One hundred and seven IMSS physicians, 106 SSA physicians and 97 private physicians were selected randomly from a census according to the sample size. The sample was weighted. Fifty-one percent of IMSS and SSA physicians were dissatisfied, against 25% in the private sector, in the first three areas. Comparing the private model and the IMSS, differences were found (P < 0.0001) in the area of 'global satisfaction' [odds ratio (OR) = 2.47, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.69-3.67], 'institution where the physician works' (OR = 2.12, CI 1. 45-3.13) and 'themselves as physicians' (OR = 1.84, CI 1.28-2.65). When the private/ SSA groups were compared, the differences were similar (P < 0.0001). No differences were found in terms of 'the patients'. When stratifying, the risks increased in females, in the group aged 31-40 years and in specialists in family medicine. CONCLUSIONS: The organization model is associated with dissatisfaction in all areas, except in 'the patients'.[1]
