Fear of failure. We train for so many years to be the best we can be at our profession. But unfortunately, sometimes procedures don't go as expected. Patient's literally put their lives in our hands and there's always a possibility of letting the patient down, letting the family down, and letting ourselves down.

Hi!  Speaking from the Human Resources world, working in the healthcare industry, one complex aspect of the medical field is the ever changing rules and regulations within the industry.  The landscape is always changing in terms of how care is delivered and how medical facilities adapt to the demands.

I completed a general surgery residency prior to becoming a colorectal surgeon. Working 80+ hours a week and trying to balance that with a family is difficult. It is worth the sacrifice, but still difficult. My biggest sacrifice was spending every third night on call away from my newborn baby her first year of life. Those are times that you don't get back.
