About the Discussion

Resident Mental Health/Burnout

We are all well aware that burnout is a key driver of poor resident mental health and overall wellbeing. Many systemic, institutional, and individual changes have been adopted to address burnout and improve mental health, but there’s no denying we still have a way to go. Join NEJM Resident 360 for a discussion about the current state of resident wellbeing as we explore effective and not-so-effective approaches to improving mental health in residency. We will discuss questions such as:

  • How do we identify burnout early on, in ourselves and in our peers?
  • What approaches have been helpful?
  • What systemic changes are still needed?
