Doctors in the speciality of Infectious Diseases spend the most time on "paperwork and administration."
That's according to a Medscape survey of about 18,000 physicians.
The results find Infectious Disease doctors spend an average of 24.2 hours a week, the equivalent of three work days, on paperwork and administration.
Next in line at 20.7 hours per week is the specialty of Public Health & Preventive Medicine.
Anesthesiology is the speciality that apparently requires the least bureaucracy: 10.1 hours per week of paperwork and administration.
