A Mayo Clinic Proceedings study concluded that “physicians who experience more burnout are less likely to identify with medicine as a calling. Erosion of the sense that medicine is a calling may have adverse consequences for physicians as well as those for whom they care.”
Does anyone else see this conclusion as astoundingly obvious? If the system beats the crap out of you and burns you out then you lose that sense of purpose (calling). No shit. This had to be studied? And then they take a bigger risk in saying that this burnout has adverse consequences? No shit.
Am I missing something here?
