Wellness and Burnout Screening Tool Wellness and Burnout Screening Tool During GME training and even afterwards during independent practice, the risk of burnout is high. It's important to self assess and evaluate your own resilience and risk for burnout throughout your career, beginning during your training. Below is a link to a self-assessment well being screening tool that is free and confidential. This link connects to a free 7 question screening tool that evaluates fatigue, depression, burnout, anxiety/stress, and mental/physical quality of life. This tool is anonymous and no information is shared with anyone. Graduate Medical Education won't have access to any of the information; the only information available to GME will be the number of trainees using the screening tool over time from our institution. After completion of the questions, scores are compared to normative data from a national sample of U.S. residents and fellows. There is also an option to sign up and create an account if you would like to track your wellbeing over time. If you are not interested, you can skip this step and directly get your results.
