Voices of Burnout: A New ATS Podcast Series

“I just remember thinking, ‘I really don’t care.’“

“I actually stopped believing I was smart.”

So say some of the ATS members who participated in the new ATS “Voices of Burnout” podcast series, which launched yesterday. Stress and burnout affect high numbers of health care workers in critical care, pulmonary, and sleep medicine, and take a toll both professionally and personally. As a first step toward destigmatizing burnout and creating an open discussion about these issues, the ATS has created a podcast series in which individuals in all stages of their careers discuss their experiences with burnout, and how they coped with it.   

Listen and subscribe to Voices of Burnout, and all the ATS podcasts, on iTunesGoogle play or wherever you get your podcasts. You can also share your own experience with burnout and find resources to help on the ATS website.
