A Landmark Symposium addresses an epidemic: In response to the steadily rising rates of physician burnout in academic medicine and healthcare in general, the University of Texas System brought together thought leaders to discuss the most current perspectives on the causes of this crisis and its solutions. Far from a purely individual experience, clinician exhaustion and disengagement has an impact on patients, students, and healthcare delivery systems. Symposium presenters located the drivers of burnout in healthcare systems and focused on solutions that require new forms of leadership, creative workflow processes, and organizational change. The symposium was initiated by the Health Affairs Committee of UT System’s Faculty Advisory Council. It was held on September 25-26, 2017, at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
