Here it is; within the doctor profession, are there any specialties (pediatrics, dermatology, GI, anesthesiologist, to name a few) that would require only 40 hours of work per week?
It’s a strange question I know, but I’ll give you a quick backstory so you understand; I’ve recently decided for a career change, the 3rd one in 7 years (professional singer - music teacher - health care), for MANY different, good reasons. Anyways, I’ve narrowed things down to Physician Assistant, or full fleduged doctor. So the reason I ask the above question is because for me personally, I NEED to have time for my music, and that won’t happen leaving for work at 6:00 AM and coming home at 6:00 PM or later. Coming from a family of doctors (2 older brothers in GI, dad’s a pediatrician, don’t get me started on my 5 uncles), and my dad mentions that there are fields that you can work 40 hours a week. He cited dermatology (claiming they make their own schedule) and anesthesiology (shift work) as examples. Is he correct? I guess I need a second opionion. Thanks guys.
