In which specialty am I more likely to get more time off? Which is closer to dermatology in terms of lifestyle? From my own research it seems that neurologists get 6wks off at VA centers and comparable time off in private outpatient practice. Anesthesiologists supposedly get 10-12wks off but it is becoming increasingly difficult to get a good job. So is it possible that 10yrs from now you will not get a job unless you agree to never have a chance of making partner and getting those 10wk vacations? After all if you don't own the patients and there are plenty of CRNAs and with all the advances in technology/automatism it's possible that there will be more grads than jobs and you'll be interviewing for a job the same way that lawyers or other non-doctors interview for their jobs?
