The quality of health care is closely related to the level of physician job satisfaction, which depends on several factors, including working conditions, income, hospital resources and workload [1-3]. Compulsory health service was instituted by the Turkish Ministry of Health in 2005 (www.saglik.gov.tr), which is a postgraduate program that requires practitioners and specialists to work 300-600 days in underserved regions of the country.
