Sleep and Physician Burnout

In this podcast, we interview three experts on physician burnout and wellness, Drs. Sakshi Dua, Najib Ayas and David Gozal. We begin by reviewing the definition of physician burnout and we discuss whether sleep is a determinant of physician burnout. We identify knowledge gaps on the role of insufficient sleep and poor sleep quality on physician burnout especially among physicians who are no longer in training. We further highlight how even wellness experts don’t think about sleep enough. Finally, we discuss future strategies aimed at prioritizing sleep in order to reduce and prevent physician burnout especially among junior attendings.
