Why do physicians stay in toxic work environments?
“For the most highly educated and specialized professional on the health care totem pole, physicians put up with a ridiculous amount of nonsense in the workplace.
You are pressured to see high volumes of patients in a rapid-fire fashion (15 minutes per visit) even when it interferes with the quality of care.
You are expected to complete mundane and excessive administrative tasks and generally are not directly compensated for this time.
You are given very little flexibility from your employers when it comes to rearranging your schedule and taking personal time off.
For the average physician, the working conditions are intolerable at best and inhumane at worst.
So the question is, why is this poor treatment tolerated?”
