Do any attending anesthesiologists work solely at night? Perhaps taking trauma and OB call so that the day team doesn't have to mess up their sleep schedules.


I know some internists who work as "nocturnists" only at night. Their lifestyle is really appealing to me because they have all days off to raise kids at home, run errands, sleep, etc.

Also useful for anesthesiologists who happen to have porphyria cutanea ****a or anesthesiologist vampires (more common than previously thought).

Thanks for the response! I should've made it more clear that I'm just a medical student now so unfortunately I won't be able to work for another 4 years :( I was just curious to see if this sort of "night-shift only" work model would be viable.

I once encountered a lady working at a blood bank who had unusually well developed canines. I didn't go back there again.
