VMS 2022 Survey Results Show Exhaustion, Joys of Medical Practice
Results from VMS's July 2022 physician and PA survey show the highs and lows of practicing medicine in Vermont and the toll the pandemic and resulting workforce crisis has had on clinicians across specialties. Out of 292 respondents, the survey results show Vermont clinicians are burned out from an unsustainable workload brought on by extreme staffing shortages and exacerbated by administrative burdens and overbearing EMRs. Despite this, physicians and PAs remain passionate about providing the very best care to their patients and advocating on their behalf. The VMS Board reviewed the survey feedback at their summer retreat to identify 2023 organizational priorities including additional loan repayment support, Gold Card programs and more networking opportunities. Thank you to our members who took the time to complete the survey this summer.
