I'm only an MS1, but am seriously considering a surgical career given my affinity for gross anatomy (and other things...). I'm married now and will probably have children by the time I enter residency. My question is: how much free time does a surgical resident get during a 5 year general surgery residency? Is it possible to be a surgical resident and a "dad" too? I'd love to hear from anyone out there doing it with kids (or know others who are).
