To identify ways to alleviate stress and burnout among medical professions, Steven A. Adelman, MD, a clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine; and Harris A. Berman, MD, dean of Tufts University School of Medicine, recently surveyed 425 practicing physicians, healthcare leaders, and executives. The following are some of the transformational approaches identified for making system-level changes to combat physician burnout:
•    Improve electronic health records to enhance the clinician and patient experience
•    Promote better self-care and work-life balance
•    Reorganize GME funding to reduce new physicians’ student loan debt
•    Place more emphasis on identifying emotional intelligence in medical school applicants
•    Refocus GME funding to produce more primary care physicians
