Healthgrades for ProfessionalsThe Most and Least Burned Out Physicians By Specialty

Physician burnout is on the rise, which should not come as a surprise after two years of fighting a pandemic. More than 13,000 doctors participated in the most recent Medscape survey on physician burnout, which included questions about their mental and physical health. Of those, 47% said they felt burned out. This is a rise from the previous survey’s 42%. Doctors who practice emergency medicine have seen the biggest increase in burnout among all specialties, and women doctors experience burnout at a much higher rate than their male counterparts.
