Abstract

Physicians can experience burnout at any stage of their careers, from medical school through the years leading up to retirement. With a little self-awareness, physicians may be able to identify the emotional, physical, and behavioral signs of burnout and seek assistance. Some of the most common symptoms of physician burnout are loss of motivation, feeling helpless, and detachment. Other symptoms are negative outlook, decreased satisfaction, feeling tired, and not responding to rest, headaches, changes in appetite, notable withdrawal from responsibilities, procrastination, and arriving late to work.

This study will survey critical care physicians, medical residents, and administrators to determine what they identify as triggers related to physician burnout. A mindfulness exercise will be trialed to identify its potential effectiveness in reducing physician burnout.

HPC2 Building, Atrium

Physicians can experience burnout at any stage of their careers, from medical school through the years leading up to retirement. With a little self-awareness, physicians may be able to identify the emotional, physical, and behavioral signs of burnout and seek assistance. Some of the most common symptoms of physician burnout are loss of motivation, feeling helpless, and detachment. Other symptoms are negative outlook, decreased satisfaction, feeling tired, and not responding to rest, headaches, changes in appetite, notable withdrawal from responsibilities, procrastination, and arriving late to work.

This study will survey critical care physicians, medical residents, and administrators to determine what they identify as triggers related to physician burnout. A mindfulness exercise will be trialed to identify its potential effectiveness in reducing physician burnout.
