The psychological burden of doctors during the current coronavirus pandemic is many times higher than their physical and mental resources, which affects the relationship of doctors with patients. It is urgent to study the relationship between the personal characteristics of doctors that are important for professional relations in order to increase the effectiveness of their psychological support. Within the framework of this work, 150 doctors of various specialties were examined by using the psychological methods, and the correlation analysis of indicators was carried out. Between the experimental indicators, relationships of different severity and orientation were established, so a high level of empathy increases the likelihood of fears and phobias in the professional activity of a doctor, and increased reflexivity can lead to difficulties in social contacts. The conclusions obtained based on the research data can be taken into account in the organization of measures to provide psychological support to doctors.
Keywords: doctor, pandemic, empathy, reflexivity, aggressiveness, rigidity, fears.
