Description: Abstract
For physicians, medical school is the point of entry to the healthcare system, a work environment with burnout rates so high they constitute a public health crisis. Talented, accomplished students enter medical school, then face an increased burden of anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation relative to age-matched peers, once their studies commence.1,2 A growing body of literature documents the psychological distress experienced by rising numbers of medical students, the unique stressors of medical education, and various interventions to improve the learning environment.
