Physician Wellness Survey Results
Physician burnout is a serious problem that is affecting the healthcare industry. It is defined as a syndrome of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishment. Burnout can lead to a number of negative consequences, including decreased patient care quality, increased medical errors, and increased turnover of physicians.
In January 2023, MCMS and the Physician Wellness Committee created a survey to get to the heart of physician burnout. It addresses work environment and systems-based issues affecting Physician health and patient outcomes.
• 142 doctors responded from MCMS, GRIPA, AHP, FQHC, URMC, RRH
• 28 specialties where represented. 95.07% of respondents were primarily clinical.
