Job burnout has been well described and refers to a transformation that occurs in persons exposed to considerable occupational stress, particularly in fields that involve human interaction. It is a pathological syndrome in which overwhelming work demands lead to emotional depletion, maladaptive detachment, and feelings of personal inefficacy. This book discusses risk factors that lead to burnout as well as its impact on performance. This book also discusses the affect sleep deprivation has on academic performance and management.
