Are US Doctors Actually Happy?

The short answer? No. That’s the sentiment from the 12,000+ physicians across 29 specialists who took part in Medscape’s recently released Physician Lifestyle & Happiness Report 2021. Physician burnout and dissatisfaction are not new, but before the pandemic in last year’s survey, 82% of doctors reported they were largely happy outside of work. In 2021, only 58% can say the same.
