Physician burnout rate decreases
The rate of burnout among U.S. physicians dropped in 2017 but still remains above 40 percent, according to findings published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Tait D. Shanafelt, MD, of the department of medicine at Stanford University, and colleagues reviewed responses from 5,445 physicians who completed one of two surveys. They found, based on the Maslach Burnout Inventory, 43.9 percent of physicians reported at least one symptom of burnout in 2017 compared with 54.4 percent in 2014 and 45.5 percent in 2011.
