Clinician burnout is a growing problem in the United States and to a much greater extent than in other countries around the world. The Covid pandemic has increased the rate of clinician burnout to the point where there are mounting concerns of clinician shortages in the very near future1 and at enormous cost.2 In this context, it is increasingly clear that urgent efforts are needed to reverse this dangerous trend. This panel will focus on root causes of clinician burnout, especially on how features of healthcare policies in regions outside the US seem to reduce or avoid clinician burnout and may model how to reverse the current trends if adopted in the US and in other countries where clinician burnout is prevalent.
