[Objective]To know the situation of occupational commitment and occupational stability of medical staff in Xianyang , and explore the influence of occupational commitment on occupational stability. [Methods]By using the stratified sampling and cluster sampling,2 266 medical workers from eight hospitals at second-class level and above were selected as research objects. The questionnaire was compiled to investigate the basic situation,occupational commitment and occupational stability. [Results]The score of occupational commitment and occupational stability among medical staff in Xianyang was 80.43±13.49 and 15.49±3.41 respectively,and there were statistically significant differences in occupational commitment and occupational stability among different groups in age and length of service(P<0.05). There was a significant correlation between occupational commitment and occupational stability (P<0.05). The multiple regression analysis showed that all arguments explained 0.70% of the total variation of dependent variable (occupational stability) and length of service had the greatest impact on occupational stability (Beta=0.086) before introducing occupational commitment,all arguments explained 28.0% of the total variation after introducing occupational commitment,and normative commitment,opportunity commitment,emotional commitment,emotional cost,economic cost and length of service had the greatest impact on occupational stability (Beta=0.193,-0.211,0.213,0.096,0.080,0.054). [Conclusion]Occupational stability is closely related to occupational commitment and its dimensions among medical staff in Xianyang,while occupational commitment and length of service have the greatest impact on occupational stability.
