What are the social lives of surgeons throughout the hospital? Do many surgeons not have time to have a very large social life? Do they have time for children / starting a family?
At school, I am most interested in gross anatomy, microbiology, and biology,
while my hobbies include athletics. A topic that I am passionate about is leadership and "organized chaos". #medicine #doctor #biology #surgeon #trauma #icu #chaos #busy #medical #premed #med
The big point I'd drive home is that you cannot always commit time to everything in your life at the same time. Sometimes work will come before your spouse, and other times your spouse will need to come first. It is important to find someone that understands this balance of time and the commitment you have made to your patients.
Great question! During med school your schedule may be a hectic one, but once you start to practice how busy you are will depend a lot on you. My cousin is a surgeon, and he has a family with 8 kids. He is able to make it to ball games and family vacations. I think work life balance is something you will juggle no matter the career you have, but it doesn't have to be as crazy as tv makes it out to be. Hope this helps!
