Physicians in certain racial/ethnic groups have lower burnout rates vs. white physicians

August 28, 2020

Physicians in underrepresented racial/ethnic groups exhibited lower rates of burnout vs. non-Hispanic white physicians, but more research is needed to confirm these findings, according to study results published in JAMA Network Open.

In a related editorial, Joel C. Cantor, ScD, of the Center for State Health Policy, and Dawne M. Mouzon, PhD, MPH, of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, both at Rutgers University, , highlighted the implications of the current study.

“The work by Garcia and colleagues raises important questions,” they wrote. “As the nation grows more diverse, identifying forces undermining the vitality of the physician workforce is as important now as ever, particularly so for physicians from groups underrepresented in medicine.
