The More Marginalized Identities Med Students Have, the More Mistreatment and Burnout They Experience

A new study from Yale School of Medicine examines burnout among medical students who are underrepresented in medicine (URiM). Appearing in the Feb. 23 issue of JAMA Network Open, the study is one of the first to delve into two specific types of burnout — burnout associated with disengagement and exhaustion-related burnout. The researchers, led by Jamieson O’Marr, MS, and Shin Mei Chan, BS, found that URIM medical students were at greatest risk for experiencing exhaustion-related burnout, but were at lower risk of feeling disengaged from the medical profession when compared to their peers.
