Physician burnout is an increasingly recognized syndrome which not only negatively affects physicians but has a detrimental impact on the overall healthcare system; similar to other physicians, gastroenterologists are susceptible to burnout due to multiple competing responsibilities.

While as a medical community we have raised awareness regarding burnout, continued efforts are needed to develop modalities to prevent and mitigate burnout.
