DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): 

Burnout, turnover, and suicide rates among veterinarians exceed those of other medical professionals. This project proposes to investigate how organizational interventions can alleviate burnout among U.S. based Veterinarians. We will investigate two major interventions for lowering burnout and improving job satisfaction in veterinary practice, with a particular focus on leadership quality and team communication for organizational-directed interventions and job crafting for a combined organizational and individual intervention.
