Physician Burnout, with Brian Hinnebusch, MD
Show Notes

Over half of all physicians report some degree of burnout with up to 80% being affected in some studies.  Burnout is associated with twice the number of medical errors and associated increases in malpractice litigation.  It leads to staff turnover; it can cost up to a million dollars to replace one physician.  In 2021 over 230,000 MDs, RNs, NPs, PAs quit their jobs.  And one physician takes their own life every single day of every single year.  

Listen to hear Dr. Hinnebusch's personal story and about  resources to address physician burnout.
