Analysis of physician satisfaction, stress, and leadership role ambiguity relative to turnover intent and cognition
by Meredith, Tosha N., D.B.A., University of Phoenix, 2007, 199; 3289589
Abstract (Summary)

In an effort to identify issues with physician turnover, this multivariate, quantitative research examines military physician turnover intent and turnover cognition in the United States Air Forces Europe (USAFE) and the relationship of these variables with military physician job satisfaction, military physician job related stress, and military physician leadership role ambiguity. Many factors often cause military physicians to leave the AF, thereby impacting retention. By improving retention, healthcare organizations will have the opportunity to identify turnover intentions as well as provide measurements to make changes in the military strategic plans. Of the 161 solicited participants, 81 responded for a response rate of 50%. Findings suggest that physician stress is a significant predictor of physician turnover intent and physician turnover cognition.
