Research clearly shows physician burnout kills patients and doctors.
Physician burnout is the single largest threat to the care patients receive and to any individual doctor’s career. Burnout is at epidemic levels in US doctors, averaging prevalence of 40 – 50% in recent surveys. (1) The connection between burnout and medical errors, poor quality care, physician depression, drug use and suicide is well documented in hundreds of research studies going back 30 years. (2)

How can physician employers address this deadly epidemic?

Consolidation in the healthcare industry has pushed the employee physician into the majority. This shift in ownership means it is now the employer’s responsibility to address physician burnout. The most effective first step is to complete their medical education. All doctors graduate with specific blind spots in stress management and the recognition and prevention of physician burnout. These missing skills put doctors at risk for burnout starting on practice day one, unless they are effectively addressed by their employer as soon as possible.

Dike Drummond MD, CEO and Founder of [ ] announced today crossing the 40,000 doctors trained threshold for the flagship training, Burnout Proof LIVE:

“All physicians graduate with a gaping hole in their medical education around stress management and burnout prevention. Our workshop fills that hole in a public forum and starts to shift the culture of the organization. Doctors learn a common language to describe the experience of burnout and can both ask for help and offer help -- perhaps for the first time. This is the initial step in building a culture of wellness into any group that employs physicians”, Drummond says.
