In the last decade, physician stress, and ultimately burnout, have accelerated at an alarming pace. Physicians who feel lost in the morass of medical practice have become all too common, exacerbated by the increased administrative responsibilities, EMRs, overwhelming work schedules, and a sense of physician devaluation. Bringing balance to one's life is viewed as "extracurricular". Physician burnout is a specific stress reaction resulting from the burdensome relationship that many physicians experience with their work resulting in emotional exhaustion, depersonalization of one's work, and a declining level of self-esteem.
