The COVID-19 pandemic appears to be intensifying workplace fatigue among some physician specialties, at a time when radiology actually saw its numbers dip, according to a new survey.

Across 29 areas of medical expertise, burnout rates landed at 42%, according to a survey of 12,339 doctors, conducted by Medscape between August and September. Specialties such as critical care (51%), rheumatology (50%), and infectious disease (49%) all saw burnout increase by at least 4 percentage points compared to 2019. Radiology, on the other hand, experienced a 10 percentage-point drop in 2020, down to 36%, the survey discovered.
