A new nationwide survey commissioned by The Physician Foundation found that physicians are struggling to maintain their morale. Of the more than 17,000 physicians surveyed, 54% rated their morale somewhat or very negative. Forty-nine percent also reported often or always experiencing feelings of burnout. The survey also found that only 36% of respondents felt positive about the future of the medical profession and 49% would not recommend medicine as a career.
