  1. Tom H. says:

    I always suspected that too little sleep was bad. Yawn.

  2. Bruce says:

    Let’s hope the women are at least as good, especially if they make up half the docs.

  3. Linda Gorman says:

    Women make up half the docs because medical schools decided that they should. One problem that has not yet been addressed: female physicians work fewer hours than male ones.

  4. Virginia says:

    I’ve always been a 8-9 hour person. I’m sure that puts me at risk for something. But there’s no better feeling than sleeping late, especially on a cold day.

  5. Tom H. says:

    I think Linda has made a politically incorrect observation.

  6. Devon Herrick says:

    I’ve also read that in medical school woman often opt for the specialties that allow better work / life balance. Dermatology was mentioned as a specialty that is financially rewarding, but doesn’t entail being on call afterhours or emergencies on weekends. Women are more apt than men to avoid areas of medicine that interfere with a normal family life.
