For too many new doctors, training years provide a crash course in depression. About 30 percent of interns and residents experience depressive symptoms or full-blown depression at some point during their training, according to study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association(JAMA).

“The medical profession has a major problem, ” Dr. Thomas S. Schwenk, dean of the University of Nevada School of Medicine, wrote in an editorial that accompanies the study. “These findings could be easily construed as describing a depression endemic among residents and fellows.”
