Why do young doctors hate medicine so much? ~SmartMoneyMD

By SmartMoneyMD

In the medical world, more doctors are asking for more time off, shorter workweeks, less call, and more pay. No way would younger doctors willingly sign onto a job with a call schedule of every other day. Is quality of life that much more important to us even though many recent graduates have upwards of a quarter million dollars of educational debt? I once had a senior partner who opted to take more hospital call when he was in his thirties so that he’d earn more to support his family. What happened to good work ethic?
