We’re only human

Too much paperwork. Not enough sleep. Too many surgical procedures to keep up with. Too much litigation. Not enough time with family. Your frustrations came through loud and clear in the second annual Labor Force survey. Over and over, you told us, in effect, “We’re only human!”

Too much paperwork. Not enough sleep. Too many surgical procedures to keep up with. Too much litigation. Not enough time with family. Your frustrations came through loud and clear in the second annual Labor Force survey. Over and over, you told us, in e­ffect, “We’re only human!”

More than 670 of you took the time to complete the survey. Only about half of you said you’d choose ob/gyn again if you had the chance to start over. While the specialty can bring joy and satisfaction, you said, increasing pressures and demands from all quarters can make day-to-day practice a challenge. The stress of not having enough time to relate to patients the way you’d like to is especially upsetting, many of you said.

Didn’t get a chance to respond to the survey? Are your views reflected here? Or do you beg to differ? Let us hear from you at Susan.Olmstead@ubm.com.
