Physician burnout is described by one researcher as “An erosion of the soul caused by a deterioration of one’s values, dignity, spirit, and will.” But exactly what is it? And why are over half of physicians today suffering from it?
“Physician Burnout: What is It and What Causes It?” is the second installment in a series for the SVMIC Sentinel authored by TMF Medical Director Dr. Michael Baron.
In the article, Dr. Baron addresses the definitions of burnout, the symptoms and risks, the causes, and how the TMF Physician’s Program can help.
