Several studies focused on the causes and effects of stress and burnout suffered by helpful professions, including doctors. Some of these studies, particularly in recent times, focused on a particular segment of the medical profession, that represented by the young physicians explaining how they are suffering stress and other professional illnesses since the early years of their career. Also in relation to the Italian situation, some studies documented this phenomenon; however, the situation could change in the near future due to the entry into force of the European regulations in November 2015. The new law reorganizes the doctor’s work in order to promote the professionals’ well-being. This chapter presents the results of a pilot research conducted by the Centre for Research and service on social and health integration (CRISS) of the Università Politecnica delle Marche on 100 young professionals registered with the Order of doctors of the province of Ancona. The survey brings to light several critical aspects revealing how young doctors are highly stressed because of hard working hours and high workloads.
