Abstract

Despite the fact that; there are various studies that have been performed on burnout syndrome and organizational commitment; number of studies that focus on the relationship between these two concepts is rather low. Target population of this includes 105 active duty health officers who have been serving under the roof of Turkish Armed Forces for more than 10 years in Ankara. The survey form is designed to include demographical features of participants, “Maslach Burnout Inventory” (MBI) and “Continuance and Affective Commitment Scale” of Mayer and Allen. When burnout levels are evaluated according to demographical features; active duty health officers who are graduated from NCOHC, serve in the military quarters and married with children, are found out to have higher scores in terms of affective burnout dimension and depersonalization sub-dimension. When affective burnout levels are evaluated according to location of duty; officers who work in military quarters have been found to have a higher affective burnout score; which has also been discovered to be statistically relevant as well (p=0,033). This study has been evaluated to be a beneficial contribution for future regulations which may intend to increase the overall morale and motivation, decrease the organizational burnout and increase the organizational commitment.
