More Than Burn Out (MTBO): New Strategies for Physician Well-being and Retention in a Post Pandemic Healthcare World


Course Description

Prior to the COVID, “burn out” had climbed to a rate of 39% of practicing US physicians. With the arrival of the pandemic, “burn out” rates climbed to 63%. Mounting evidence suggests this new psychological state of distress among many physicians is “More Than Burn Out.” Beyond the traditional definition of “burn out”, this encompasses moral injury similar to combat veterans, higher levels of vigilance for physical and psychological safety in the healthcare workplace and exhaustion regarding attempts to maintain access to quality care in an environment of significant workforce staffing shortages. Dr. Clancy will provide concrete strategies and tactics physicians and health systems can take to address this new version of distress that is “More Than Burn Out.” His insights come from his work as a psychiatrist embedded in a Level 1 Emergency and Trauma Center as well as a consulting psychiatrist for the critical care services of a 1,000-bed academic health center.
