Description:
Physician burnout is an epidemic in the United States. More than half of US physicians have measurable symptoms of burnout: emotional exhaustion, de-personalization, and reduced perception of personal accomplishment. The rates have soared in recent years, and it’s worse for physicians in many specialties, particularly internal medicine, critical care, and emergency and family medicine.
