To measure the prevalence of burnout among pediatric residents at Karolinska University Hospital (KUH).
To describe the local drivers of burnout and the protective factors that lead to resilience and workplace engagement.
Prevalence of burnout among Swedish pediatric residents in this study was 39%, which is lower than reported in the US (50-60%).
Drivers of burnout were identified across all four domains. They included local features of the learning environment, and many are modifiable.
Protective factors include perceived control over scheduling, better mental and physical health, lower perceived stress, and being a parent.
Future work will evaluate interventions designed to modify the drivers of burnout and reinforce the drivers of resilience.
