About half of radiologists are burnt out, according to a 2022 Medscape survey on radiologist lifestyle, happiness and burnout. Virtual Radiologic (vRad), recognized the need to address this pervasive concern amongst their radiologists, and took strides in implementing a comprehensive well-being program through VITAL WorkLife.
In a recent video interview, radiologist Jonathan Lee, MD, shared his experience on battling burnout in his career and emphasized the connection between work/life balance and productivity. Dr. Lee commended the recent partnership between VITAL WorkLife and vRad.
"vRad has shown that they're committed to giving radiologists a better work-life balance," mentioned Dr. Lee, "I don't think that is purely altruistic. I think that is a deep-held understanding that if radiologists are more emotionally happy with their work-life balance, they're going to be more productive."
