Sample text

Early-career faculty striving to establish themselves are well advised to avoid especially-time-consuming committee assignments, such as medical school admissions (due to time-intensive interviews and panel meetings) and the committees on human and animal research (numerous protocols to review and debate). Although committees are somewhat institutionally dependent, some good ones to begin with are quality of care, ambulatory care, curriculum reform, and time-limited ad hoc task forces focused on an issue relevant to one’s research or clinical work.

Overwhelmed physicians become mechanical in their clinical role and are at risk for losing their passion for healing others. A stressed, irascible, and exhausted faculty member makes a poor role model for physicians in training. In scholarship, being overwhelmed stifles creativity and inventiveness. Avoiding burnout requires setting manageable limits and boundaries between work and domestic life.
