Question special

A 2014 study published in Academic Medicine surveyed over 4,000 medical students, 1,700 residents, and 800 early career physicians. Remarkably, the study found that 56% of medical students met burnout criteria, while 60% of residents screened positive. How does this high rate of burnout among medical students influence the transition to clinical practice? And how do we address these findings in our field's youngest trainees?
