Fresh Press: ACS Surgery News January issue now online


The January issue of ACS Surgery News is available on the website. This month’s issue features a special report on burnout. A new paradigm of burnout is emerging: The roots of the problem may be institutional. Addressing physician burnout must begin with recognition of the challenge and a commitment to change from the top levels of management, according to a study by Tait D. Shanafelt, MD, and John Noseworthy, MD, of the Mayo Clinic.

Tyler G. Hughes, MD, FACS, Co-Editor of ACS Surgery News, reflects on the career of a rural surgeon who made her mark and had a profound impact on her community, despite her short life.
