More than half of all physicians (54 percent) now show at least one symptom of burnout,

up 10 percent over three years (Mayo Clinic).

At Lightning Bolt, we understand that many factors contribute to burnout, but we are committed to doing our part to improve physician well-being. With help from physicians in our Wellness Survey initiative, we hope to study the interaction between burnout and scheduling patterns across a wide array of health systems and identify best practices for organizations to implement.

We hope the resources provided below can offer strategies to reduce burnout, enhance resiliency, and improve overall wellness.
