The teaching profession is target of numerous psychosocial stressors, which when persistent, can lead to Burnout Syndrome (BS). The present study aimed to determine if there are differences between men and women in dimensions and profiles of the SB. The non-probability sample consisted of 474 teachers working at different levels of education in Porto Alegre, metropolitan region of Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil. This study used the Cuestionario para la Evaluación del Syndrome de Quemarse por el Trabajo (CESQT) and a questionnaire to survey sociodemographic and professional data. Results obtained through Student's t test show that male participants have higher averages in the dimension of Indolence, Guilt and Profile 2. Female participants have higher averages in the dimension of Enthusiasm toward the job. The results of the study point to the need to consider the differences in the social construction of gender in the illness process of the teaching category.
