To the Editor On behalf of our coauthors, we write to explain an error that was brought to our attention in the Original Investigation “Association of Clinical Specialty With Symptoms of Burnout and Career Choice Regret Among US Resident Physicians,” published in the September 18, 2018, issue of JAMA.1 In the article, we sought to determine factors associated with symptoms of burnout and career choice regret among resident physicians. We found that symptoms of burnout occurred in 45% of responding participants and career choice regret in 14%, but with a wide range in prevalence by clinical specialty. We concluded that symptoms of burnout and career choice regret were prevalent among US resident physicians.
