Figure 3: Dyrbye et al. demonstrated that as physicians progress in their career, the prevalence of depression, burnout, and suicidal ideation decrease. Medical students, residents and fellows, and early career physicians completed the 22-item Maslach Burnout Inventory. The Maslach Burnout Inventory is composed of three subscales: Emotional exhaustion (EE), depersonalization (DP), and a sense of personal accomplishment. Color-coded bar graphs show the percentage of medical students, resident and fellows, and early career physicians who had high scores on the emotional exhaustion and depersonalization scales and the percentages of the same groups who had positive burnout, symptoms of depression, and suicidal ideation. Of note, the same source also compared the scores of each group of trainees and early career physicians with age-matched participants in the general population. The authors found statistically significant differences in burnout, emotional exhaustion, and depersonalization subscales, but not in depression and suicidal ideation domains
