Letter to the Editor
Sir: In their recent article, Schwenk et al. bring a very important
and sensitive issue to light. The authors show a high rate
(11.3%) of moderate to severe depression among physicians.
However, in the context of the article, they find an even more
interesting, yet puzzling issue: the fact that 52.2% of physicians
with moderate to severe depression reported that “working hard
helps to lessen my depression.”
