SERIES OVERVIEW: Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands. Burnout reduces productivity and saps your energy, leaving you feeling increasingly helpless, hopeless, cynical, and resentful. Eventually, you may feel like you have nothing more to give.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound negative effect on the mental health of the nation, especially among those who are faced with combatting the virus. Burnout in health care professionals is widespread and growing; recent studies indicate elevated levels of burnout, along with related conditions of depression and emotional exhaustion.

The purpose of this lecture series is to address the symptoms of burnout that are experienced individually as well as organizationally. Participants can expect to receive practical tools and tips for burnout prevention as well as hear the lived experiences of others and how they overcame burnout in their professional careers.
