With an expected increase of urological patients of 40% in the years to come, it is of importance that urologists remain sustainably employable. This is why we have investigated the sustainable employability of urologists and residents in the Netherlands with a questionnaire. Job satisfaction is high (78%), but the workload is also perceived as high (56%). 45% of urologists wants to work less and 20% of urologists are considering quitting. 16% temporarily (partially) stops working due to signs of burnout. Women experience more work pressure-related complaints than men. Despite the high job satisfaction, the sustainable employability of urologists is under pressure. Attention to the prevention of burnout and better regulation of the workload is desirable.
