Burnout and professional dissatisfaction are becoming prevalent among physicians, particularly in the wake of COVD-19. However, researchers have recently begun to explore the impact that physician mistreatment has had on burnout and professional satisfaction. According to a recent article published in JAMA, burnout is an occupational phenomenon characterized by emotional exhaustion, cynicism related to one’s work, and reduced sense of professional efficacy that is prevalent among physicians.1 This program will explore the current state of physician mistreatment and professional satisfaction, and offer solutions for physicians to employ in a variety of practice settings. Additionally, hear from the experts within the AMA’s Professional Satisfaction and Practice Sustainability business unit as they share some of the tools and resources that were developed to enhance physician satisfaction.
