Resumen In Japan, a growing number of physicians are leaving their hospitals because of difficult working conditions in hospitals. A cross-sectional survey was conducted in 2007 for hospital physicians throughout Japan to analyze the interrelationships between working conditions, job satisfaction, burnout and mental health among physicians using various standardized questionnaires. Of 336 physicians invited to participate in the study, 236 responded (response rate 70%). Sixty physicians (25.4%) were women with a mean age of 41 years. In the path analysis, burnout and poor mental health were related directly to job dissatisfaction and short sleeping time, while they were related indirectly to poor work control and heavy on-call duty. In the multi-group path analysis of both genders, sleeping time was related to job satisfaction more likely among female physicians but less among male physicians. Immediate, extensive and decisive measures need to be implemented to improve work condition and to reduce overwork among hospital physicians.
