Abstract: To study the stress, the psychosocial risks associated to the job and the burnout, in a group of junior doctors working at the emergency ward; and to analyze what of those variables could predict and are better related with burnout.

In addition, MBI results show that 45% of our population presents high emotional exhaustion simultaneously to high depersonalization.
