Abstract:

This survey-correctional study aimed to determine the medical educators' self efficacy, organizational commitment, job performance,and job satisfaction in selected medical schools in Western Visayas and how these variables would relate to one another. Data for this study were obtained using the MSES Self-efficacy Scale, Faculty Performance Rating Scale , Job Satisfaction Scale and Organizational Commitment Scale. Descriptive. Descriptive statistics employed were frequency counts, percentage analyses , means and standard deviations; while inferential statistics were the t-test for independent samples, the one-way analysis of variance (one-way ANOVA), the two-way analysis of variance (two-way ANOVA), the multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), the Pearson's r, and the stepwise multiple linear regression set at .05 alpha. Study results revealed that generally, the medical educators had good sense of self-efficacy, were fairly committed to their organizations, were satisfied with their jobs, and generally had very satisfactory job performance. The medical educators differed significantly in the levels of self-efficacy, when they were classified according to academic performance in medical school, extent of their private clinical practice, and medical school affiliation; in the levels of their organizational commitment when they were classified according to tenure, family income, number of years in the academe and medical school affiliations; in the levels of their job satisfaction when they were classified according to number of years in medical practice and extent of their private clinical practice; and in the levels of their job performance when they were grouped according to tenure of employment, number of years in medical practice, number of years in academe, and the extent of private medical practice. The interaction effects of self-efficacy and organizational commitment on the medical educators' job satisfaction and job performance were statistically significant. They differed significantly in their job satisfaction in terms of the normative subscale of organizational commitment and in their job performance in terms of the affective subscale of organizational commitment. Positive and significant relationship existed between the medical educators' organizational commitment and job performance. Monthly family income, tenure of employment, specialization, performance while in medical school, additional academic degree(s) taken, number of years in medical practice, number of years in the academe, number of medical school affiliations, extent of clinical practice, and membership in specialty societies, as well as medical educators' self-efficacy, job satisfaction, and job performance were significant predictors of the organizational commitment. Only job performance was found to significantly predict job satisfaction. Finally, tenure of employment, specialization, performance while in medical school, additional academic degree(s) earned, number of years in the academe, extent of private clinical practice, organizational commitment, and job satisfaction were significantly predictors of job performance.
