Connect to the conversation around mental health: A spotlight on physician burnout

For more than 2 years, the COVID-19 pandemic has put emphasis on an issue that has long affected healthcare workers and physicians -- burnout. Every year, Medscape surveys thousands of member physicians to gain critical insight into how burnout is affecting them in their practice through the Physician Burnout Report, and the results are eye-opening.

This year’s report showed that 47% of physicians feel burned out, compared with 42% the year before. Burnout affected both men and women, but women reported higher levels, at 56% compared with 41% for men. And the numbers are only getting higher. In 2020, 36% of men and 51% of women reported burnout.

In a recent article published in BIOPHARMADIVE Dr Hansa Bhargava, Medscape Education’s chief medical officer, and Leslie Kane, MA, senior director of Medscape Business of Medicine, discuss their insights into the Burnout Report, and physician burnout in general -- starting with how COVID-19 has brought this issue into the spotlight.
