This podcast explores the motivating factors for a physician experiencing “Joy in Practice”, a topic that will also be addressed in an upcoming issue of the Southern Medical Journal. Join Matthew Du, a third-year medical student at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine as he details how this study used a bit different approach to the topic of satisfaction with one’s practice; instead of addressing the commonly studied concept of “burn-out,” he and his coauthors, Drs. Zhoy Jung Tak and John Yoon, utilized the novel concept of why physicians experience joy in practice. The authors’ study utilized validated physician well-being measures, and tested the concept of joy in practice with certain intrinsic and extrinsic factors. The authors believe that there is promise in addressing joy in practice as a marker of physician well-being, and offer primary and secondary outcomes from the study as insightful into the perspectives from a national physician survey.
