Target Audience



The 2015 Iowa Physician Survey found that 79.3% of physician respondents reported some level of professional burnout. Coupled with low professional morale – just 41% of Iowa respondents expressed positive feelings about the state of the medical profession – these growing rates of burnout paint an image of a profession in crisis. In February 2016, the IMS Board of Directors approved the formation of an ad hoc Physician Burnout Task Force to determine how IMS might best support Iowa physicians at risk of or currently experiencing professional burnout. The task force's recommendations, contained in The Steenblock Report, included development of this online resource guide to provide all Iowa physicians, residents, and students with access to resources, education, and expertise.

Am I Experiencing Burnout?

One of the greatest challenges in combating professional burnout is overcoming the stigma and recognizing that you are experiencing burnout symptoms. Burnout is common in every profession and especially common in the medical field. There a number of online self-assessment tools available to help quickly and privately determine whether or not you are experiencing symptoms of professional burnout.
