This Analysis in Brief (AIB) provides a snapshot of burnout in three types of faculty at U.S. medical schools: faculty in clinical departments providing patient care, faculty in clinical departments providing no patient care, and faculty in basic science departments. This study examines the prevalence of reported burnout in each of those groups and in specific departments and explores the relationship between burnout and faculty engagement. Results can inform institutional interventions that address workplace and organizational factors contributing to burnout, as well as individual interventions that promote faculty wellness and resiliency.
