Abstract

Physician burnout has become a critical issue in a rapidly changing health care environment and is reported to be increasing. However, little is known about the prevalence of this problem among board-certified family physicians. Using an abbreviated burnout survey, we found a lower prevalence of this problem than has been previously reported.
