According to the study “Resilience and Burnout Among Physicians and the General US Working Population”, published on JAMA in 2020, the physicians had significantly higher resilience scores than the general employed US population. Higher resilience scores were associated with lower burnout rates, but even the most resilient physicians had substantial rates of burnout.
But how can you fight back?
I have recently publish in my social media a manifesto. My goal is to inspire physicians to think outside of the box, to look for different pathways, living a life outside the standard rat race doctors are drwoned into.
In my view, physicians have 5 ways to make themselves different.
