Perumalswami CR, Griffith KA, Jones RD, Stewart A, Ubel PA, Jagsi R. Patterns of Work-Related Burnout in Physician-Scientists Receiving Career Development Awards From the National Institutes of Health. JAMA Intern Med. 2020;180(1):150–153. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2019.4317
Physician burnout, a pathological syndrome characterized by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment in response to prolonged occupational stress, is a national priority.1,2 Burnout appears to be more common in certain physician subgroups, including women.1 We extend prior research by reporting on the patterns of work-related burnout in physician-scientists.
As detailed elsewhere,3 the University of Michigan institutional review board provided approval and a waiver of documentation of consent. Between August 2010 and February 2011, we surveyed 1708 individuals who received new K08 and K23 awards from the National Institutes of Health during 2006 to 2009. In 2014, we conducted a follow-up survey that was administered exclusively to respondents to the initial questionnaire; 1066 (62.0% of the originally targeted population) responded to both surveys.3
