Zhao Yufang, Zhang Qinglin (School of Psychology, Southwest China Normal University, Chongqing, 400715)
Burnout is a prolonged response to chronic emotional and interpersonal stressors on the job, and is defined by the three dimensions of exhaustion, cynicism, and inefficacy. Doctors burnout has negative effects on themselves and their patients and even the whole society. This research examined doctors burnout and factors relating to levels of job burnout with Maslach Jackson's MBI. The results show that (1) doctors' burnout is serious on the whole; (2) doctors who have worked 16～20 years experience significantly higher burnout than others; (3) the alienist experiences the highest exhaustion and depersonality; (4) the professional post is an important factor related to job burnout.
