psychological costs, reduce the efficiency and adaptability of the employee. One of the components of the work is
burnout syndrome. In the field of psychiatry, however, it is particularly important because, as confirmed by numerous
studies, this group is very often exposed to this condition The purpose of this article is to analyze available scientific
literature concerning risk factors, stages of development and effects of burnout in a group of psychiatrists.
