As usual, Fizzy, everything you say is true. So depressing.I do think that attendings probably work just as hard as residents. But the difference is, a) they're beginning to be higher on the totem pole, and b) if they manage their career well, the "extra" work is stuff they enjoy. At least that has been the case for many of the attendings I've talked to recently.
Hehe. I'm on the cusp of "Tired?! Just you wait"
"It's 2:38 a.m., the patient has had stable back pain for 37 years, and you need me to come in NOW and do a stat consult for it because he donates to the hospital fund?!!!"
That 4th year has got to have *after you match* added & really like half a year. Lol
