Hi guys,

I'm somewhat interested in pulm/cc, mainly because it seems to be a good combo of both specialization and breadth.

Some of the pulm/cc guys I've met are just wizards -- guys who are insanely strong in medicine and can deal with true crises. Do you think it is a fair assessment by me to think of pulm/cc as int medicine on meth?

Anyway, what is the lifestyle of a pulm/cc doc like? Is it as bad as or worse than surgery?

Thanks for any info.

That analogy is actually very appropriate. A good pulmonologist can take care of just about anyone as much as any one doctor can. The meth part is also approriate since they go without sleep way too often.
