National study of general internists. While GIM divisions overall demonstrate high stress and burnout, division rates vary widely. Sustainability efforts within GIM could focus on visit length, staff support, schedule control, clinic chaos, and EMR stress. Focused on academic general internists rather than clinicians in practice; there were relatively few VA respondents and few APP respondents, so generalizability may be limited, especially regarding general internists in community-based practice.
