Burnout amongst physicians is a major issue today. Neurologists, both practicing and those in training, are at risk. A recent survey demonstrated that approximately 73% of neurology residents had one symptom of burnout. Over the last few years, medical governing bodies have developed guidelines to help recognize and mitigate burnout. This SIG will explore the current state of where we are in avoiding burnout in our trainees and discuss possible future interventions.


  • Describe the current state of burnout amongst academic neurologists and neurology trainees.
    Identify potential burnout mitigation strategies for neurology trainees.
    Discuss ways in which burnout mitigation strategies could be applied at their individual institutions.
