Medscape: New Lifestyle Report Finds Residents Ready to Use Telehealth
Do Residents Pay Enough Attention to Their Own Health?
Only about one third of residents told us that work-life balance was a challenge. Yet only 13% reported that personal health and wellness received adequate attention on a regular basis. Over one third (36%) said they did not spend sufficient time on their personal health and wellness, and over half (51%) indicated that sometimes they did and sometimes they didn't.
This habit of self-neglect may come back to haunt them later as practicing physicians.
