Derm, path, and gen peds, apparently. Or at least that’s how I’m reading it. Other interesting factoids:
- The top of the list for highest percentage of burnout are all primary care/first line specialties, plus neurology for some reason.
- Surgeons have worse than average work life balance but that doesn’t necessarily translate into more burnout – maybe they know what they’re getting themselves into?
- Doctors in general work a lot. Not just on average (10 hours a week more than the general population sample in this study), but also a much higher percentage work 60+ hours (37.8 vs 10.6). Although for an apples to apples comparison it would have been nice to see this matched only to other professionals, or at least college graduates, but I bet it still holds.
