A survey was developed containing the Maslach Burnout Inventory, Primary Medical Evaluation of Mental Disorders, Short-Form Health Study, and questions surrounding demographics, medical errors, and coping behaviors. The responses included open text, Likert scales, and multiple choice. They were anonymously recorded and are presented in aggregate form. The primary outcome variables included burnout scope, severity, stressors, and correlation with medical errors. Secondary variables included measurements of burnout criteria and work–life balance. A total of 210 physicians were surveyed, with a 34% response rate. Of the respondents, 89% were men and were predominantly white and married with children; 60% of the surgeons worked in academic hospitals and 40% in community hospitals. Burnout was reported by 34% of the respondents. Symptoms of emotional exhaustion were present in 50%, depersonalization in 25%, and a reduced sense of accomplishment in 35%.
