Theoretical Physicist Albert Einstein Provides Important Clue to Understanding and Preventing Burnout
The American Meditation Institute founder Leonard Perlmutter claims that theoretical physicist Albert Einstein provides an important clue to understanding how physicians and other healthcare providers can prevent and relieve burnout symptoms when he wrote that, “A problem cannot be solved on the level at which it appears; it must be solved on a higher level.” According to Perlmutter, “The daily practice of AMI Meditation and its allied disciplines make it possible to access and employ a ‘higher level’ of intuitive knowledge from the superconscious portion of the mind that can enable individuals to make creative, stress reducing and health affirming lifestyle choices.”
Physician Burnout Questionnaire
A 2017 AMA Medscape Lifestyle Report asked physicians from 27 medical specialties to grade the severity of their burnout on a scale of 1 to 7—one being that it does not interfere, and seven indicating thoughts of leaving medicine. All but one specialty chose a level four or higher. Are you experiencing Physician Burnout symptoms? Take our quiz.
Practical Tools for Burnout Prevention
Docs vs. the Public
The American Medical Association and the Mayo Clinic recently conducted a study to determine how physician burnout differs from burnout in the general working population. The study, published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, found that compared with the general U.S. population, physicians worked a median of 10 hours more per week, displayed higher rates of emotional exhaustion and reported lower satisfaction with work-life balance. Though the general population does experience burnout, the changing state of the health care system is clearly driving the dramatic increases in physician burnout.
