The estimated percentage of "physician faculty" in military graduate medical education programs who "are experiencing burnout," according to a recent article in the journal Military Medicine -- The Prevalence of Faculty Physician Burnout in Military Graduate Medical Education Training Programs: A Cross-Sectional Study of Academic Physicians in the United States Department of Defense.

The most common drivers of occupational distress were cumbersome bureaucratic tasks, insufficient administrative support, and overemphasis on productivity metrics.

We identified only one independent risk factor for burnout: increasing numbers of deployments (OR 1.38, 95% CI 1.07–1.77). Physicians in our cohort who reported a desire to stay beyond their initial active duty service obligation were less likely to be classified with burnout (OR 0.45, 95% CI 0.26–0.77). The most common drivers of occupational distress were cumbersome bureaucratic tasks, insufficient administrative support, and overemphasis on productivity metrics.
