Abstract

Professional and occupational burnout is a recognized syndrome among healthcare professionals, although the point at which burnout begins is unclear. There is a dearth of research investigating burnout and occupational stress in relation to podiatric medicine, although two recent studies have reported high levels of burnout expressed by podiatric medical practitioners. This study was undertaken to compare the levels of burnout in newly qualified practitioners in Australia and the United Kingdom. The results suggest that levels of burnout are higher in these groups than indicated by the published normative medical data. Occupational stress was associated with lack of professional status and with geographic and professional isolation. Within these two themes, there were clear differences between the two groups.
