Study Description

Brief Summary

Coffee drinking is frequently reported as a negative outcome in studies on burnout, but the effect of an increased coffee intake on resident burnout has not been reported in the literature. This study is a prospective, interventional cohort study enrolling up to 50 residents from the Internal Medicine Residency Program to look at the relationship between coffee and resident burnout.

Detailed Description

Resident burnout is increasingly being recognized as detrimental to both physician well being and patient care. It has been linked to an increased rate of medical errors and a reduced quality of patient care. In addition, there have been multiple high-profile physician suicides in the past years. This has resulted in a renewed focus on physician mental health and workload.
