        Take-Away Points of the Presentation

        1. Compared to a probability-based sample of the general US population, physicians work longer hours, manifest more emotional exhaustion, manifest more depersonalization, manifest more suicidal ideation, and acknowledge much less satisfaction with work-life balance.

        2. Contemporary medicine's escalating oversight and control of how physicians spend their time goes hand in hand with a loss of physician autonomy. The system needs to evolve away from managing physicians' time to focusing on long-term health.

        3. Coaching of physicians is a strategy for addressing workplace challenges. It can enhance physicians' professional skills: communications, workflow, interactions, etc. Coaching demonstrates the potential to address burnout. Theoretical efficacy derives from positive psychology, mindfulness, and self-determination theory.

        4. Having a high quality primary relationship matters.

        5. Physicians with work-life balance challenges, financial or relationship challenges, or substance-abuse problems should not be afraid to seek help.
