Learn About Physician Burnout on CME Webcast

OSU Wexner Medical Center logo Learn About Physician Burnout on CME Webcast. In medicine the International Classification of Diseases defines burnout as “…a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.


It is characterized by three dimensions:

  1. feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;
  2. increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job;
  3. reduced professional efficacy.

But what is driving all this burnout and what can we do about it? To help us answer these questions, I have invited a nationwide leader in physician wellness. Dr Laxmi Mehta is a Professor of Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular disease and serves as Vice Chair for Wellness for the Department of Internal Medicine and the director of the Gabbe Health and Well-Being program at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. She is also a recognized leader of Preventative Cardiology and Women’s Cardiovascular Health.
