Abstract

Background: Physician burnout is a response to chronic work stress characterized by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced sense of personal accomplishment. Resiliency is the ability to respond to chronic stress in a healthy and adaptive manner. No prior studies have specifically examined the prevalence of burnout and resilience in Mohs surgeons. Objective: This study aimed to assess the current well-being of Mohs surgeons and specific resilient behaviors that can protect against burnout. Methods: A cross-sectional electronic survey was sent to members of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery. The survey combined the validated Maslach Burnout Inventory and The Resilience Profile
