from Medical Bag
Among emergency medicine residents, 76.1% reported symptoms of burnout, similar to the rate of burnout experienced by emergency medicine physicians, according to a study published in Annals of Emergency Medicine. According to the researchers' conclusion, "[b]urnout within the emergency medicine specialty seems to begin as early as residency training, although [program year] 1 residents seem less burned out. ... [R]esults provide baseline data that can inform and allow objective evaluation of future individual-, programmatic-, and systems-level burnout prevention interventions."
