The aim of the undertaken study is to investigate the magnitude of burnout that affects the employees. This study also intends to explore the mediating effect of organizational commitment in a relationship of job burnout, and the turnover intention. The data sample comprises of 1152 respondents, which was collected from the doctors and nursing staff of different private hospital of Karachi through a structured questionnaire. For the analysis purposes, we have employed descriptive statistics, the structural equation modelling, and confirmatory factor analysis. The modified model of this study showed both direct and indirect influence among variables of interest. The research constructs job burnout, and its dimension namely: cynicism, emotional exhaustion, and professional efficacy have a direct effect on turnover intention. The organizational commitment along with its three constructs including affective commitment, continuous commitment, and normative commitment have a mediating influence in a relationship of job burnout and turnover intention. Job burnout level among employees of the healthcare sector has also a direct influence on organizational commitment.
