The purpose of this study is to identify and analyze factors that are affecting radiologists' turnover intention. For the purpose, this researcher surveyed 200 radiologists who were serving at secondary medical institutions located in Busan. For the survey, the researcher used a structured questionnaire. Findings of the study can be summarized as follows. This study show that in order to reduce radiologists' turnover, it is necessary to develop effective personnel management strategies that can make internally motivated radiologists, raise their job satisfaction and organizational concentration and reduce their job stress. Radiologists' turnover rate would not decline if such problems as excessive workload, lack in the number of persons of the same profession and unfair personnel management system are not solved and if no efforts are made to remunerate at reasonable levels, provide more opportunities of promotion and raise job satisfaction. These solutions to prevent radiologists' turnover could be successful only when officially supported by hospitals.
