Summary For the purpose of understanding the current conditions of the duties of industrial physicians and the consciousness of graduates of the University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Japan (UOEH) engaged in industry, we performed a questionnaire survey in July, 2001 and July, 2008 and reported the results (J UOEH 2009 31: 281-91). A similar survey was carried out in July, 2015. We dispatched the questionnaire to industrial physicians and physicians in occupational health organizations who had graduated from UOEH and got the replies. The investigation asked about their career, their activities, and how they thought about their duties. We compared the three years and got the following results: 1) The ratio of respondents who were satisfied with the salary or official post was 38.3, 48.1, 65.4% in each investigation, respectively. 2) The ratio of the respondents whose official post and rank would not be promoted in the future was 25.3, 28.4, 32.3%, respectively. 3) The ratio of respondents satisfied with the relationship with the superior and the industrial health staff was 70.8, 80.3, 86.1%, respectively. The investigation performed every seven years since July, 2001 showed that the ratio of the graduates of UOEH whose official post and rank would not be promoted in the future had gradually increased, while the ratio of graduates who were satisfied with the relationship with the superior and the industrial health staff had also gradually increased.
