Tackling Physician Burnout Among Urologists

With a burnout rate of 49%, urology consistently ranks among the top five specialties with the worst levels of depression*. As we commemorate World Suicide Prevention Day, we need to ask ourselves if this is sustainable.

According to a study published in Urology® (the Gold Journal), burnout manifests as low personal achievement, depersonalization and emotional exhaustion among urologists. Unmanaged, it led to more medical errors and poorer quality of patient care. Coping mechanisms such as stress eating and alcohol consumption were associated with higher levels of burnout!

Head out for a walk with a friend instead. By doing so, you’re helping both your patients and yourself.

Without urinalysis results, urologists may struggle to identify risk factors associated with patients’ stones and thus fail to propose the necessary preventive therapies. To improve the compliance rate and accuracy of urinalyses, urologists should educate patients on the proper usage and importance of these tests!
