Pediatric Emergency Care: May 2020 - Volume 36 - Issue 5 - p 257-261 doi: 10.1097/PEC.0000000000002098 Buy Metrics Abstract Whereas our last article focused on burnout in practicing pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) physicians, this article centers on burnout in PEM fellows. Our discussion is based solely on trainee burnout literature. As graduates of pediatrics or emergency medicine residencies, PEM fellows are charged with achieving attending-level clinical expertise while continuing to cope with trainee challenges, such as limited practice autonomy, low pay, financial debt, and uncertain future employment. In this article, we discuss PEM fellow burnout and review risk and protective factors, presentation, and evidence-based interventions to mitigate it. In the absence of PEM fellow-specific literature, we share pediatrics and emergency medicine residency data. This article is dedicated to the trainees we have lost to suicide. We miss you.
