MUNOZ-COBO OROSA, Beatriz et al. Job satisfaction and quality of life of Spanish resident doctors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2021, vol.67, n.264, pp.169-190.  Epub 14-Mar-2022. ISSN 1989-7790.


To describe and analyze the existing perception about the factors related to job satisfaction (LS) and quality of life (QOL) of Spanish resident doctors during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Descriptive-correlational study, the target population being the Spanish residents who were asked, using the online form, between 11/01/2020 and 12/31/2020. The Font-Roja questionnaire was used for LS and the WHOQOL-BREF for QOL (both using a 5-value Likert scale).


404 residents responded, without differences by sex (p = 0.269). The LS presented a mean of 2.97 ± 0.04 and the CV of 3.27 ± 0.03. An association was observed in the LS of the first-year residents and the rest (p < 0.001). The LS was not affected by the emergency shifts, but the (QOL) for social relationships (p = 0.042). The relationship between SL and (QOL) was good (Rho = 0.53, p < 0.001).


The tutor was a reference for the resident, not the hospital management. No differences were found in relation to sex or duty shifts with the LS. First-year residents presented higher LS and (QOL), which could be due to less responsibility and less accumulated fatigue during the pandemic. The shifts on duty did affect QOL, specifically in social relationships. Poor research training was also compounded by the pandemic.
