Richard’s Answer

I am a radiologist. I work about 50 hours per week. My hours vary as my group provides 24/7 service. Twice a year I work a week of night shift; and twice a year, I work a week of evening shifts from 4-11 pm. Some radiologists work in outpatient centers and can have more regular hours.

40 hours but that is changing pending on your career. If you are on hourly basis you would qualify for overtime after 40 hours per week.

There are many avenues if you become a nurse and can work as few or as many hours as you like. Typically nurses work three 12 hr shift a week but there are all jobs that being on call in an option and also positions that you can work five 8 hr days.

Hi Hayden!

Most careers that require Medical School will have you working 45hrs to 50hrs a week at the minimum. When you start your residency, which is pretty much a probational period before you're an official doctor, you'll likely be working more than this because you're trying to learn as much as you can. As a nurse, you'll probably be working 50hrs minimum per week, Salary, which means no overtime. It depends on what kind of Nurse you want to specialize in too. Some nursing professions only require a 2 year community college degree. For those you're looking to be working at least 40 hrs per week with some over time added to that since you won't be salary based. Hope this helps!

Rachel’s Answer

The hours that surgeons work are highly variable. During training, they work 80 hours a week as residents. After graduation, they have the ability to make their own schedule and determine how many hours a week they want to work. Typically, surgeons work 40-60 hours per week.

Ideally 8 hours per day  but some days works take me to stretch for 1 or 2 more depending on the commitments and closers . so typically 40-45 hours weekly .
