Physician and Health Professional Burnout

Research shows that an average of 1 in 3 doctors suffer from symptomatic burnout on any given office day. Some surveys show burnout rates over 70%. Physician burnout and its complications are the #1 threat to a physician’s medical career.

Huge stress levels, long working hours, and poor work-life balance are contributors to physician burnout—a phenomenon that has reached epidemic proportions.  More severe cases can lead to a blurred sense of purpose and goals and—in extreme cases—may even lead to suicide. Physicians ignore the symptoms and those that do validate them don’t seek assistance– often because they don’t feel comfortable to do so.  This is detrimental to them, to their families and their patients.
