Association Between Team Learning Behavior and Reduced Burnout Among Medicine Residents
Burnout is a pervasive and alarming issue for physicians-in-training (residents), as well as practicing physicians, with significant consequences for resident well-being, care quality, and patient safety.1,]2 Efforts to address burnout have emphasized both organization-level factors that create more supportive environments and individual-level factors that enhance physician resilience in the face of challenges.2,]3 However, residents primarily work in teams—delivering patient care with fellow trainees, faculty, and interprofessional colleagues. Team practices and behaviors have been found to impact how individuals experience their work1,]4—yet, the relationship of these team-level factors to resident burnout is still largely unknown.
