Providers are increasingly interested in new opportunities in the coming year, according to the Medicus Firm's "2015 Physician Practice Preference & Relocation Survey." The percentage of those that will definitely not make a career change dropped from 43 percent last year to 34 percent in this year's survey.

Practicing providers who are looking to make a career change are most motivated by greater financial rewards (40.7 percent) and a better geographic location (25.9 percent).

Here are eight things to know about what physicians are looking for in their practice settings, based on the survey.

The Medicus Firm surveyed 2,685 providers across 21 specialties and 47 states. Participants included some residents, fellows, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
