Physician Burnout Cartoon – Fun Friday

If you haven’t noticed, I love irony. That’s why this cartoon from Pediatrician and Cartoonist Dr. Maypole was perfect for a Fun Friday entry.

The sad part of this Fun Friday is that this is far too true for far too many doctors. The one good thing is that people are now recognizing it and working to address it in their workforce as Dr. Maypole suggests we do.
