Massachusetts Medical Society: President's Message on Physician Burnout (Video)

President's Message on Physician Burnout (Video)

Physician burnout has been deemed a public health crisis and one of the most concerning issues facing our patients and the medical profession. If we don’t address it urgently and consistently together This crisis will continue to affect the overall health care of our patients and continue to erode the mental health of clinicians across the country.

By 2025, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services predicts that there will be a nationwide shortage of nearly 90,000 physicians, many driven away from medicine or out of practice because of the effects of burnout.  Further complicating matters is the cost an employer must incur to recruit and replace a physician, estimated at between $500,000-$1,000.000.  

In this video, Dr. Alain Chaoui, President of the Massachusetts Medical Society, addresses the challenges and solutions on how to bring back the joy in medicine.
