Nearly two-thirds — 64 percent — of employed physicians are likely to recommend employment over self-employment to their fellow physicians, according to data from the Medscape Employed Physicians Report 2014.

This shows many physicians employed by hospitals, large physician groups or places like community health centers, though they have some issues with their situation, are still pleased overall with employment.

Other responses to Medscape's survey further reveal employed physicians' satisfaction with their practice setting.

53 percent believe patient care is better in the employed setting
49 percent are satisfied with their income (30 percent are neutral)
46 percent became more satisfied with their income after becoming employed
54 percent are satisfied with their work/life balance
56 percent said their work/life balance improved after becoming an employee
