Program Administrator Burnout Study!


This is your chance to participate in a groundbreaking national study on Training Program Administrator wellbeing & burnout!

In July 2017, a yearlong study on Training Program Administrators’ wellbeing & burnout will be initiated by members of the medical education community at Boston Medical Center. The study will be comprised of 5 surveys distributed over a one year period (July 2017 – July 2018).

Why should you participate?

We aim to create a national benchmark for Training Program Administrator burnout and to assess if scales fluctuate across specialties during the academic year. We also hope to identify whether institutions have activities or events geared towards Training Program Administrator wellness. Results of this study will be reported in aggregate and submitted for presentation at national meetings in 2018 and/or 2019.

Who can participate?

All internship, residency and fellowship Training Program Administrators, for either accredited or non-accredited programs, and from any specialty can participate. Any level of experience, full time or part time, regardless of title, can complete the surveys. Participation in this study is completely voluntary; no adverse actions will be taken if you decide not to participate.

To participate, email Sandra.Palma@bmc.org by July 1st, include the email address where you would like to surveys sent.

Participants will be entered into a raffle for a $100 Amazon Gift Card. You are eligible for up to 5 entries (1 per completed survey).

Please forward or redistribute this email to other eligible Training Program Administrators.
