    Burnout, biopsy, BPH, and more: Post-AUA review




    Burnout is real

    As with all AUA meetings, this year’s event provided some great teaching points. First, burnout is real. But what is burnout? The best definition is the original definition from 1974 that states that burnout is “an erosion of the soul caused by a deterioration of one’s values, dignity, spirit and will.” Depending on what study you want to believe, urology burnout is at between 40% and 64%—either number higher than I expected for a specialty like ours, which has always seemed to be low stress. But all is not lost; data was also presented that exercise is likely the best tool to prevent this problem and getting into better shape happens to be one of my goals this year.
