US MDs Suffering from Burnout

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013


A survey of more than 7000 MDs that was published in the August 2012 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine showed that nearly 50% were suffering from burnout. Thirty eight percent had high emotional exhaustion, 29% felt depersonalized, and 12% had a low sense of accomplishment. MDs at the front line of care were at the greatest risk. They work too much and have problem with work-life integration.

Today's MDs have lost control of the practice of medicine. There are more controls on how medical decisions are made and less flexibility in individualizing treatment. As there is more HMO and governmental controls over medical practice, MDs will relinquish more decision-making power in patient management.
