Thanks

It totally depends on the neurologist. Some I know work 3 days a week others never see their families. Priorities determine work hours.

Of course, it depends on the program but I have heard that they do work relatively less than some other residencies. It depends on the program though.

I heard that a hospital usually hires very few neurologists because they are very expensive. So this leaves a lot of pressure on them and so they have to work for long hours...Is this true?
