Coming in September in JACS, and online now: National survey of burnout among U.S. general surgery residents

In an analysis of the first national survey evaluating burnout among general surgery residents, authors Leisha C. Elmore, MD, MPHS; Donna B. Jeffe, PhD; Linda Jin, MD; and colleagues found that 69 percent of U.S. general surgery trainees met the criteria for burnout. Having a structured mentoring program was associated with lower rate of burnout. The article discusses the causes and the potential impact of burnout on the quality of patient care, and calls for increasing efforts to identify at-risk populations and designing targeted interventions to mitigate burnout among surgical residents.
