Naiara’s Answer

Yes, yes, and yes. Medicine is known as the career of "delayed gratification". It will take you 4 years of hard work, studying, and tons of dedication to get through medical school. During your residency, you will be busy but will have 3-4 weeks of vacation a year. Once you finish your training, you can practice as you please. Everyone has different priorities, but definitely work-life balance can be achieved, eventually :)

Yes. Most physicians are in a group practice and cover for each other during vacation weeks.
