WORKSHOP-Managing Physician Burnout

How to Avoid and Manage Burnout for Physicians

Half of physicians report symptoms of burnout. Many are emotionally exhausted and feel disillusioned and cynical. If burnout is not managed they may experience depression, drug abuse, suicide, alcoholism, and other emotional problems. Unfortunately this can impact the quality of patient care. While many of the factors that cause burnout are systemic in modern medicine, there are several skills that can equip physicians to manage burnout and enjoy the practice of modern medicine. Some estimates suggest that the direct and indirect costs associated with replacing a  physician can range from $100,000 to over $1M. This workshop explains why physician and surgeon burnout is a dilemma that must be managed and is not a problem that can be solved.
