Burnout from a Physician's Perspective with guest Dr Richard Sztramko
Show Notes

Physician burnout is a growing problem in the medical community. It's characterized by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a decreased sense of accomplishment. These symptoms can lead to decreased job satisfaction and an increase in errors.

Several factors contribute to physician burnout. The job demands, long hours, and unrealistic expectations can all take their toll. In addition, many physicians feel like they cannot provide the best care for their patients due to time constraints and other factors beyond their control.

In this episode of the Wellness MD Podcast, Dr. Daniela Steyn and Dr. Richard Sztramko discuss physician burnout. Dr. Richard Sztramko practices Geriatric and Internal Medicine at St. Peter's and Juravinski Hospitals in Hamilton, Ontario. He is an Assistant Professor at McMaster University. He is also the co-founder of Arya Electronic Health Records and Handover (https://www.aryaehr.com/), a cutting-edge health tech company rapidly expanding in hospitals and outpatient clinics throughout Canada.  

Dr. Sztramko, being a Geriatric physician and family man, will discuss the first signs of burnout that you should look out for. He will also share the strategies he personally implemented to combat and prevent burnout.
