Burnout afflicts a significant number of academic faculty and clinicians. There are many efforts the individual can undertake to prevent or lessen burnout. However, it not likely these will be successful without the institutional environment that promotes and atmosphere that assures self-efficacy, a sense of value and meaning and clear communication between leaders and members of the organization. This review discusses the factors that organizations and their leaders can leverage to create such an environment. Such measures are critically important not only for the health of the individual but to the organization as well.
