Abstract Burnout is becoming increasingly common in the health care profession. Indicators of burnout include feeling overworked, frustrated, emotionally drained, and less productive. Burnout leads to interpersonal conflicts, physical symptoms, compulsive activities, decreased productivity, and negative emotions. Individuals who experience burnout believe they cannot change their situation. Job burnout can be overcome after the cause is pinpointed. To revitalize a career and move away from a burnout state, individuals need to change their thought processes and viewpoints about the people and things that may be contributing to their burnout.
