Any working individual can experience burnout and healthcare professionals are no exception to this rule. A recent study found that approximately 80% of physicians experience at least one symptom of burnout, including exhaustion, cynicism, and low sense of personal achievement. These symptoms of physician burnout vary on a day to day basis, depending on how demanding your job responsibilities are and whether or not you are taking some time for yourself. So what is the best way of dealing with burnout?
Burnout is not defined simply as exhaustion. Experiencing symptoms of burnout can cause you to lose interest not just in work but in almost all other things that you do as well. It also affects your patients, staff members, and colleagues. Physicians who are frustrated with the stress of daily practice find it more difficult to establish solid relationships with patients.
The most stressful job occupations are ones that involve a great deal of responsibility and little control over results. Your role as a physician fits within this description.
