Women, Burnout, and Medicine

“Burnout, Women and Medicine”

 

  I’d like to talk to you about today about the one factor that makes you 20 to 40% more burned out and gives you about a 50% higher chance of committing suicide related to your burnout. 

Any guesses?

 That factor is being a woman in medicine.

   It has for many years been known that that the risk of burnout is about 20 to 40% higher in women in medicine, and the risk of suicide is about almost double that of men and male physicians and burnout. 

Why is this?

 

   I would like to highlight this and bring this to light the women physicians who are twice as good and get paid half as much as my male counterparts.

 

  I’d like to highlight the fact that in spite of the fact that women are very qualified and equally qualified to for any position in medicine that they are also have gender bias or gender discrimination against them, as well as other issues that have responsibilities outside of our experts societal expectations. 

 

  Outside of medicine, in the home with childcare, and those types of things that also putting additional pressure on women.  I just want to make sure that when it physicians feel that the yes is absolutely possible that you were burned OUT.

 

Yes, it’s more possible that you’re burned out.

 

  Yes, it’s more possible that you would have a higher risk of suicidal ideation or suicide. We want to make sure that you take that cape off, you know Superwoman and that you do not feel like you have to provide all things to all people. You can avail yourselves of those same resources that any other physician male or female, can, in regards to diagnosing, treating, getting your burnout handled, and getting additional resources to help with all of the demands on all of our lives.

 

  Please know that we are here for you, and that we realize that there’s increased risk for women in medicine.
