The odyssey continues with rigors of sleep-deprived residency, and an ongoing on-call-related stress and sleep deprivation within the context of illness and death, making them tough out of necessity. However, medical careers, as all careers, are marathons, and physicians are merely human. So why is it that more is not being done to address issues related to physician burnout?
