Nearly one third of young doctors in training suffer from depression, according to a US study Tuesday that warned the phenomenon may have negative effects on health care.

The analysis in the Journal of the American Medical Association included more than 17,000 physicians in training, going back as far as 1963.

Led by Douglas Mata, a doctor at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, the research involved a systematic review and meta-analysis of 54 studies involving 17,560 physicians.
