Introduction and Purpose: Workaholism can be enjoyable, but at the same time, frustrating  and problematic with positive and negative repercussions. This study aimed to investigate the relationship of workaholism and organizational silence with burnout in staff of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences. Methods: This descriptive, correlational study was performed in 302 individuals selected through stratified random sampling. The data collection tools included Workaholism Analysis Questionnaire (Spence and Robbins, 1992), organizational silence  questionnaire (Hashushian, 2013), and Maslach Burnout Inventory (Maslash and Jackson, 1981). To analyze the data, descriptive and inferential statistics (Pearson’s correlation coefficient test and regression analysis) were performed, using SPSS version 20. Results: The mean of workaholism, organizational silence, burnout, and organizational commitment were 3.57±0.46, 2.89±0.71, 2.12±0.75, and 4.18±0.73, respectively. There was a significant inverse relationship between workaholism and burnout, while there was a significant direct association between organizational silence and burnout. Conclusion: Considering our results regarding workaholism, organizational silence, burnout, and organizational commitment, designing and implementing training programs for staff to promote their awareness regarding these concepts can be beneficial.
