“A terrifying privilege”: Residency during the COVID-19 outbreak

As a former University of Chicago trainee in General Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, I am delighted and honored to lead our Section, building upon our tradition of strength and growing in new and exciting directions. The Section of General Internal Medicine GIM encompasses a highly talented, very collegial and committed faculty who are recognized nationally in the areas of medical education, ethics, clinical care and research in healthcare disparities and outcomes. The Section continues to be recognized for its significant teaching efforts and leadership in the Pritzker School of Medicine as well as its strong community partnerships and outreach programs. Recent accomplishments include studying the impact of the Affordable Care Act ACA , resulting in increased demand for primary care for many more medically complex patients. Many GIM faculty play key leadership roles in medical education at The University of Chicago serving as directors for the internal residency program, medical student courses and fellowship programs. We invite you to learn more about the teaching, research, and clinical activities of our dynamic Section through contact with individual faculty members and programs.

J Fam Med Dis Prev Professional burnout is a multi-dimensional phenomenon, which may result from prolonged unhealthy occupational stress. Symptoms in burnout cluster in three domains: emotional exhaustion, feeling isolated, and low work satisfaction. Medical students and residents are at particular risk because of their dual student pressures and in-training clinical care responsibilities.

Common sources of personal and professional stressors include lack of time for leisure activities, inordinate workloads and sleep deprivation, emotional drain stemming from sick and dying patients, and training coinciding with major events of life. If not managed appropriately, burnout can result in a lowered quality of life, negative impacts on patient care, and in extreme cases, professional impairment.

The literature not only provides guidance regarding structural components and preventive programs that are effective in reducing burnout risk in medical students and residents but also summarizes the leading sources of professional stress amongst medical trainees, their impact on professional performance and personal lives as well as potential impact of interventional programs. In this manuscript, we performed a narrative review that considers the causes and effects of burnout, protective factors against burnout, and eventual prevention of burnout.

Through analysis of the literature, implementation of widespread monitoring of burnout levels, prevention programs, and the consideration of changes in the structural components of the medical student and residency curriculum is recommended across medical schools. Burnout is a multi-dimensional condition that includes emotional and physical exhaustion, a sense of depersonalization, and low levels of perceived accomplishment [ 1 – 4 ].

When Victoria Pham, DO, walked into the orthopedics on-call room by accident in East Meadows, New York, she met the man who would propose to her in Tuscany less than a year later. And although Tim Tsai, DO, a family medicine resident in Summit, New Jersey, recently ended a nine-month long-distance courtship, he is more empowered because of the experience.

He advises residents to be mindful of what a relationship reveals about themselves. What these three residents have in common is a willingness to make room in their hectic schedules for relationships, some that even blossomed into love. Find out what worked for these couples and learn how romance can be a priority in residency. Tsai says.

To date, we have taken an all-too-comfortable approach in our response to burnout. We are addressing the problem the same way that we handle disease-from a reactive, cerebral, and overly academic angle. Together, we nodded vigorously, leaned in attentively, and let our guards down as spirited laughter mixed with cathartic tears. We work long days and nights side-by-side on the wards yet feel profound loneliness in what we wrongly perceive as solitary struggles.
