VIDEO: Half of gastroenterologists report burnout

ORLANDO — In this exclusive video from the World Congress of Gastroenterology at ACG 2017, outgoing ACG president Carol Burke, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic, discusses her presentation of survey results that showed high rates of burnout among gastroenterologists.

“Altogether ... 49% were burned out,” she told Healio Gastroenterology and Liver Disease. “My personal opinion was that we were going to find that workplace issues led significantly to burnout, and we were surprised to find it was most of the family and psychosocial issues that contributed to burnout.”

You can read about the findings of this study in detail here, and Burke also shared strategies to maximize wellness and decrease burnout at the practice management course held before the scientific meeting.
