Abstract: This is a questionnaire survey study, the objective of which was to gauge the perspectives of the doctors in Singapore on doctors' professional and career satisfaction. The study used the mailed questionnaire to capture the doctors' opinions. Our findings indicate that the majority of doctors in Singapore are quite satisfied with their autonomy to treat patients and relationship with patients. However, most of them are dissatisfied with amount of leisure time and promotion and career development prospects. Descriptive, stratification and multivariate analysis were applied to GPs'(general practitioners) group and specialists' group. Moreover, the effects of factors including gender, working years, age, annual income, specialist/GP, private/public and disciplines of the specialists were carefully examined. Multivariate analysis was performed to identify the predictive factors leading to positive responses or negative responses on certain items. Our findings were compared with the counterparts from similar studies in the other developed nations. Finally, the possible reasons for our study are discussed and the recommendations are presented.
