This study was designed to figure out how anesthesiologists think about their job values and expected tendencies through questionnaires.
The directions for completing internet questionnaires were sent to all members and semi-members of the Korean Society of Anesthesiologists by email. Paper version of the same questionnaires was sent to residents of some university hospitals, who did not answer the internet questionnaires. The questionnaires consisted of items of basic, 14 job values and 80 expected tendencies. The answerers were asked to choose 4 items among job values and 10 items among 80 tendencies. The answers were analyzed according to the groups of job positions, subspecialties, ages and gender.
Among items of job values, 'decision making', 'taking care of people', 'working with my hands' and 'working with my mind' were chosen by more than 40% of answerers, and answer rates were similar between each comparative groups. Among items of expected tendencies, 'be calm in crisis', 'make decisions rapidly', 'be perfectionistic', 'be good coordinators', 'be self-confident', 'think logically', 'be tolerant of others', 'be able to do more than one thing at a time', and 'be persevering' showed high answer rate, but the answer rate of individual items showed some differences between groups.
Although there were some items that showed different answer rates between groups, there was little difference in job values and expected tendencies between groups on the whole.
Key Words: anesthesiologist, expected tendencies, job value
