Survey 472 physicians at Stanford in 2013 and followed 2015. At baseline, 26% of physicians reported experiencing burnout and 28% reported intent to leave within the next 2 years. Two years later, 13% of surveyed physicians had actually left. Institutions interested in the economic cost of turnover attributable to burnout can readily calculate this parameter using survey data linked to a subsequent indicator of departure from the institution
