Part 3 of the wellness webinar series will focus on ways to prevent burnout among surgeons. Burnout is psychological exhaustion that progresses from emotional exhaustion to depersonalization of others to eventually the loss of personal achievement and the desire to leave medicine. Residents in surgery and emergency medicine are at a greater risk for burnout. This 60-minute webinar will review what burnout is, the personal risks involved and solutions to mitigate burnout.

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Define burnout and the symptoms of burnout.
  2. Review the personal risks of burnout.
  3. Discuss coping skills and how to mitigate burnout.
