Abstract

Relationships have been reported between job satisfaction and productivity, consumer satisfaction, turnover, absenteeism, stress and burnout. We investigated job satisfaction amongst plastic surgical trainees at a regional plastic surgical unit. We aim to identify facets of the job influencing overall satisfaction. All plastic surgical trainees were recruited. A validated Job Satisfaction Survey was used to identify facets of their jobs resulting in satisfaction. Trainees in this unit expressed high satisfaction from the nature of their work and level of supervision. The trainees reported least satisfaction with the working conditions of their job. This study highlights the important factors influencing job satisfaction in a group of plastic surgical trainees. Identification of these factors allows trainers to ensure satisfaction of their trainees and subsequent higher performance, productivity and lower turnover and absenteeism.
