In continuing coverage, American Medical News (9/4, Krupa) reports on the recent study which found nearly half of doctors suffer from at least one symptom of burnout. The article explains, “The many rigors and stresses of medical practice mean that physicians experience burnout at higher rates than the general population. They work an average of 10 hours more per week and are nearly twice as likely to be dissatisfied with their work-life balance, according to an Archives of Internal Medicine study published online Aug. 20.”
