Physician burnout is an issue having an impact on all of medicine but having a significant impact on the field of urology. Burnout begins in medical school and worsens in residency. Increased workload leads to increased burnout both in residency and in practice. Issues with work-life balance, electronic medical record usage, decreasing reimbursements, and increased Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services burden all have an impact on physician satisfaction with their practices. Burnout should be acknowledged, and measures for prevention should be taken by hospitals and residency programs to decrease and prevent physician burnout.
