Burnout in Athletic Training

Dr. Andrew Gallucci worked on Burnout in Athletic Training as part of his doctoral studies.


This podcast was a live recording at the Trinty Sports Medicine Symposium 2022.

The YouTube video is of the live presentation.

Burnout can be Emotional or Physical, or both

Some signs and symptoms of burnout

  • Cynicism
  • Waking up tired after a full night of sleep

Increased exhaustion leads to increased medical errors

It is important to recognize, address, set boundaries, and seek support when you feel like you are experiencing burnout.

Some Athletic Trainers will not speak up, but if you are already planning on leaving the location or profession then why not have the conversation.

A few tips:

  • Set do not disturb on your phone
  • Set lock out timers on your email
  • Delete email from your phone
  • Have seperate devices for checking email and phone calls
