Burnout and exhaustion in healthcare go well beyond physicians

Studies which look into burnout and job satisfaction in healthcare tend to focus on physicians. However, there is a whole network of people that work around these physicians to facilitate the practice of healthcare. The strain of burnout is not only shouldered by physicians, but by non-physician healthcare workers such as nurses, receptionists, administrative office support workers, business professionals, technicians and technologists.
