Feeling Burnt Out? Recent Survey Shows Specialties With The Highest Rates of Burnout

A recent survey by MedPage Today offers a glimpse into which specialties have the highest reported rates of burnout among physicians and salaries for various specialties. Review the results.

These results mirror those found in The Physicians Foundation 2018 Bienniel Survey, which many of you participated in last year. Not to make you feel worse, but North Carolina specific results are broken out in this survey and it seems that NC physicians are particularly dissillusioned.  Over 64 percent of NC respondents said they feel somewhat or very negative about professional morale and the current state of practice as opposed to 55 percent of physicians nationwide feeling that way. Compare NC specifics in The Physicians Foundation survey.

NCMS leadership is well aware that many of our members are feeling frustrated and burned out. In conjunction with our LEAD Health Care Conference in October and the NC Consortium for Physician Resilience and Retention, we offered a Physician Wellness Summit, which brought together decision makers from the major health systems in the state to come up with solutions to this problem. We continue to work as part of the Consortium for Physician Resilience and Retention and through other initiatives to address the issue of physician burnout. Learn more and access resources on our Physician Wellness page on the NCMS website.
