Study: Oncologists Report High Career Satisfaction, Symptoms of Burnout

Although oncologists report a high level of satisfaction with their careers, many have experienced symptoms of burnout, according to a study presented at the 2013 annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Researchers surveyed a representative sample of 3,000 oncologists between Oct. 2012 and Jan. 2013.

While 83 percent were reported satisfaction with their career, and 80 percent with their choice of specialty, 45 percent had at least one symptom of burnout (emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, etc).
