Quick question... My wife and I want kids in the next few years (I'm an MS III MD/PhD). My wife understands that I am only interested in surgical subspecialty (ENT), and completely supports that decision and career route. We've decided to have children after intership, as I want to try to ensure that I don't miss too much to the important beginnings... My question in how does one ask residents, either at your home institution or during the interview process, about this delicate issue, without sounding a bit "not focused" on the residency? I have heard (urban legends?) that some gen surgery residencies tell their applicants that they have a 100% divorce rate - but I want to ensure that my career doesn't comsume my family, too (Let's face it one of us it enough. For those of you in residency - what would your thoughts on the matter be?
