Abstract

Burnout is characterized by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment. All physicians, and especially surgeons, are at risk for developing burnout. The best strategies for mitigating burnout mimic a modern approach to medicine: the development of preventive practices to protect, promote, and maintain health and well-being. Job satisfaction, job engagement, and compassion satisfaction help protect from burnout. Individual commitment to self-care in conjunction with support from within health care organizations create the optimal framework in which burnout can be mitigated.
