Hello, Burnout: Special Edition

Why is there an increase in suicidal rates in residency?

For decades, the podiatric profession did not appear particularly concerned with the topic of burnout, and podiatric processionals have been excluded from all large-scale survey-based research studies conducted on burnout across a number of medical specialties. In recent years, however, the phenomenon has continued to gain increasing recognition and concern from major podiatric medical societies. This special edition titled “Hello, Burnout” takes a look at the emotional topics of anxiety, depression, and maintaining motivation.
