Physician Lifestyles -- Linking to Burnout: A Medscape Survey

A Medscape Survey, March 28, 2013

We often associated oncology with a burning out specialty due to patients suffering aspects and our inability to deal with this situation. This interesting survey provides another situational perspective, and put patients themselves as a most stressor factor in our practice.
Many patients have serious and painful conditions, and despite your best efforts, you'll never be able to satisfy every one of them. And some people simply don't help themselves.
