Medscape National Physician Burnout & Depression Report 2018

We offer to our readers an interesting Medscape’s report on depression and burnout of American physicians. In addition to the link of the article, here is a short excerpt:

Among physician respondents, 42% reported burnout. Fifteen percent of all physicians admitted to experiencing either clinical (severe) or colloquial (“feeling down”) forms of depression (3% and 12% respectively). According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 6.7% of all American adults suffered at least one major depressive episode in the past year.

    We are expanding our programs to address this across the school of medicine with med students, residents and faculty
    I would like to get a copy of the report that I can down load or get a PDF copy. Most physicians and administrators will not scroll through 27 pages of links in this format

    Thank you
