Abstract

Burnout is a global health problem affecting physicians across all medical specialties. Radiologists, in particular, experience high rates of burn out, and this trend has only continued to worsen. The “Promoting Health and Wellness for Radiologists Task Force of the Association of University Radiologists—Radiology Research Alliance” presents a review of the prevalence, causes, and impact of burnout among radiology faculty and trainees, and a discussion on strategies for overcoming burnout and promoting overall health and well-being among radiologists.
