Xavier,

I would have thought that it behaved something like many of the conditions some docs get, such as drug use, alcohol use, fatigue, depression, etc. Perhaps a symptom here and there of all of these. Studies would help. Perhaps they have already been done! Is there a diagnostic description for burnout?
