School of Medicine Student Burnout Inventory

The Medical Student Well-Being Index was invented by Mayo Clinic and is a reliable tool that helps medical schools and individuals screen psychological well-being. It evaluates fatigue, depression, burnout, anxiety/stress, and mental/physical quality of life in medical students. It has been validated as an accurate tool to predict and help identify students with severe distress for early intervention.

It allows students to track their well being over time, and provides access to many helpful resources for more information, and for self management to prevent and combat stress, anxiety, and depression.

LSU New Orleans medical students receive a link from the student affairs office that invites them to create a personalized account.  The message is sent several times a year, through email, to keep students aware of this helpful tool.
