Hoff et al. [23]   Years Intending to Remain a Hospitalist by Risk of Burnout   
No Risk of Burnout (n = 225)
< 4 years = 6.4%
4–10 years = 34.9%
> 10 years = 58.7%
At risk of burnout (n = 105)
< 4 years = 16.5%
4–10 years = 47.6%
> 10 years = 35.9%
Burned out (n = 51)
< 4 years = 44.0%
4–10 years = 24.0%
> 10 years = 22.0%
