Burnout in Young Oncologists

A pan-European survey on the work conditions of Young Oncologists

The survey is now closed for participation!

In 2013, the ESMO Young Oncologists Committee (YOC) has been conducting a survey with the objective of understanding the background causes and level of burnout among young oncologists.

The survey has now been closed for participation and we would like to thank all participants for the valuable input and participation. More than 700 replies have been collected and the data is now being studied.

Watch this space for information about outcome and more details.

We have collected information – anonymously - primarily in Europe, on how young oncologists perceive their job situation early in their career, and how it affects both their professional and private life.

The Young Oncologists Committee feels this is an incredibly important topic which is often ignored. Surveys have been conducted in individual countries previously but this is the first study that addresses medical burnout in oncologists across Europe.

This project is coordinated by Young Oncologists Committee member Susana Banerjee (United Kingdom) and former YOC member, David Olmos (Spain), and we have collaborated with national young oncologists groups in order to help highlight this Europe-wide survey.

Thank you for you assistance in making this data collection possible!
