Abstract: In order to assess the professional characteristics and identify the main problems in the work of neonatologists of the megalopolis, an anonymous survey of 179 neonatologists of St. Petersburg was conducted. It was found that 95.2% are women, the average age of which is 44.13±0.13 years. The majority of doctors works in neonatal departments of obstetric hospitals in maternity homes and perinatal centers and has an average experience of 18.10±0.11 years. The reason for choosing the profession of a neonatologist for the majority of respondents was love for children (63.6%) and the belief that this profession is their vocation (58.8%). Almost all doctors are fully responsible for the quality of their work and want to improve the level of knowledge in the specialty. A significant number of neonatologists often perform their professional duties overtime (35.2%), consider their workload excessive (26.1%), do not have time to rest (48.6%) and have a feeling of overwork (60.6%). About half of doctors are not fully satisfied with their current work (46.8%), mainly due to low wages (34.2%), significant physical and psychological stress (36.0%), as well as the emergence of conflict situations in the team (25.8%). However, the majority of neonatologists does not want to leave medicine (89.2%), change their medical specialty (91.4%) and are satisfied with the choice of profession (91.6%). In general, the organization of care for newborns in their medical organization and St. Petersburg, more than half of neonatologists evaluate as “good” (an average of 4.11±0.11 and 4.08±0.09 points, respectively). Thus, despite a sufficiently high level of motivation and professional competence, the study revealed a significant number of problems in the activities of neonatologists working in the megalopolis, the timely solution of which can significantly affect the quality of medical care for newborns.
