The only aberation I see is Neurosurgery. This is one very lucrative specialty and very competitive nation wide. Anesthesia is "hot" these days among medical students. They "perceive" it as a lifestyle specialty with big cash.
They are wrong and will find out we work as hard or harder than most neurosurgeons!
