Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine occupational burnout of resident physicians at a public university hospital in Turkey. The Maslach Burnout Inventory was used for measuring burnout levels - emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation, and personal accomplishment - of physicians. All available 510 resident physicians were surveyed in this study. Approximately, 53% of the participants responded to all of the questions in this instrument. Our findings indicate that burnout levels of resident physicians vary significantly based on medical specialties of the participants. Emotional exhaustion and depersonalisation are significant repressors for personal accomplishment. Implications of occupational burnout on organisational culture are also discussed.
