SVS addresses uncomfortable survey on physician burnout and depression head-on and with intention


Dawn Coleman (Ann Arbor, USA) shares headline findings from a Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) survey that found 41% of 960 respondents met validated metrics for burnout. “Burnout, depression and suicidal ideation represent a very real problem within our society and workforce,” she tells Vascular News, as she lauds the society’s efforts to recognise and tackle these uncomfortable findings among the vascular surgery workforce head-on and with intention.
Coleman was interviewed at the SVS Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM; 12–15 June, National Harbor, USA).
