Hi - this is a great forum, i think I may be posting here often in the future. I've heard a lot about how great the opthy lifestyle is, as far as not having that much call, etc. But I haven't gotten the chance to speak to any female ophthalmologists. I was just wondering how flexible you can be with this specialty in terms of working part-time (esp in private practice). Do such opportunities exist in this field? are they difficult to find? I know its definitely possible in family practice, maybe even in ob-gyn. Is it difficult to balance family and career in opthy? after all, it is a surgical specialty... thanks!
