Abstract

The present study measured the prevalence of burnout and depressive symptoms among surgical residents and fellows across an urban academic health system. Prevalence of burnout and depression were 63.2% and 36.7%, respectively. Greater workload appeared to be correlated with increased burnout and depression, whereas the presence of program-driven wellness initiatives was associated with better wellness outcomes.
