DermI'm just curious as to which fields have more stable work hours and doesn't involve frequent emergencies. Examples include dentistry and ophthamology/optometry. Thanks.
You can have stable work hours and few emergencies in most all specialties. This usually comes at the expense of pay. If you want no emergencies, rads or dermI'm just curious as to which fields have more stable work hours and doesn't involve frequent emergencies. Examples include dentistry and ophthamology/optometry. Thanks.
All of these may involve call, particularly if you work on an inpatient setting. As mentioned, FM can be very unstable work hours if you do OB. In psych at hospitals there's somebody on call 24-7 because suicide attempts etc don't just happen during business hours. And radiology both has become more interventional (if a surgeon wants a bleed embolized before he opens a patient or there's an abscess that needs a drain, he calls IR; if someone has a septic joint or disk it's often radiology, not ortho that puts that needle in under image guidance in the middle of the night, and its radiology thats going to reduce your kids intusuception at 2 am) and is much less less lifestyle friendly than in prior decades (many hospitals now offer 24-7 attending reads).Dentistry and optometry aren't medical specialties btw.
Dermatology, Radiology, Psychiatry and Family Medicine are a few specialties with stable hours
