Up to 35-45% of medical students and residents suffer from the impostor phenomenon or “an internal experience of intellectual phoniness,” a phenomenon highly correlated with anxiety, depression and burnout, according to a research abstract. The same is true for those in other STEM fields.
Chakraverty will share preliminary findings from an ongoing study using surveys and interviews to examine how the impostor phenomenon might influence career decisions for individuals in STEM and medicine.
