How can we reduce burnout in medical schools?

During an AMA Medical Student Section discussion, a panel of experts offered a few helpful tips to reduce burnout, including “getting outside the red tape,” working toward solutions, not getting overextended, and pointing out that gratitude can go a long way.

Are there programs that focus on the mentor/mentee relationship?

The Stanford University Medical Center developed the Educators-4-Care (E4C) program, which pairs five to six medical students with a faculty member who serves as a teacher, mentor and colleague for the duration of their time as a medical student. “It gives students a person to go to when they’re in stress because we really get to know the students well,” said Lars Osterberg, M.D., an associate professor of medicine at Stanford School of Medicine and the director of the E4C program.

The Learning Communities Institute works to improve health care education across the continuum of learning.
