Research on psychological well-being at work (PWBW) is challenging.
Factor analysis revealed that psychological well-being at work can be conceptualized through 5 dimensions:
- Interpersonal Fit
- Feeling of Competency
- Desire for Involvement
- Perceived Recognition
This also applies to the training of medical residents and fellows. It is important to create an environment that promotes collaboration and personal growth, while avoiding exhaustion and finger pointing.
