In case the individual is not capable of resisting stressful conditions, s/he would be exposed to psychologicalphysical- behavioral symptoms and effects. One of the most important outcomes resulting from the long-lasting psychological pressures is the job burnout. The present study’s objective is to survey the job burnout rate among Zahedan University of Medical Sciences staff. The present study is a descriptive-analytical cross-sectional research which has been conducted on 172 individuals among Zahedan University of Medical Sciences staff. To collect the required information a two-part questionnaire was used. Data were analyzed by the use of SPSS 19 software and descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation, variance analysis, and independent t-test. The individuals’ average age was 36.49 6 9.85; 106 individuals were women, and 146 individuals were married. The job burnout mean score was 58.46 6 10.17, and the mean scores for emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishment were 23.21 6 4.92, 10.30 6 3.56, and 21.51 6 4.68, respectively. The relationship between gender and marital status with job burnout and each of its indicators and components was not statistically significant (p  0.05). The relationship between age and job burnout (p 5 0.005) and emotional exhaustion (p 5 0.05), depersonalization (p 5 0.04), and reduced personal accomplishment (p 5 0.003) was statistically significant. The existence of varied levels of job burnout in Zahedan University of Medical Sciences staff makes it necessary to pay careful attention to staff health and the creation of supporting-system facilities to reduce job weariness and exhaustion.
