  1. aFactors in the model: age, relationship status, sex, have children, work hours/week, academic degree (undergraduate [associate or BA] vs. graduate [Maters, Doctorate, other]), practice setting [inpatient vs. not], burnout, depression, fatigue, satisfaction with work-life balance. Forward stepping logistic regression w/ backwards stepping confirmatory run. Age and sex were kept in the model because these are traditional confounders; burnout was also kept in the models
  2. bMissed ≥ 1 day of work due to personal health in the last month
  3. cSelf-rated work performance score 0–8 on the World Health Organization Health and Work Performance Questionnaire
