The purpose of this study is to elucidate the structure of workplace preferences of healthcare professionals using a conjoint analysis. Self-administered questionnaires were developed, in which respondents chose one hospital out of a selection of two virtual hospitals in which work conditions were different. Surveys based on these questionnaires were conducted on medical doctors and nurses in three hospitals. The results suggest that for preferential selection of workplaces, medical doctors place more importance on the frequency of night shifts, the support for academic conference participation, and the support of paperwork reduction ; nurses were found to base their decisions on the factors of education programs, and appropriate working times.
