    I just have a question for all those poeple out there who are experiencing the rigors of residency.

    When it really comes right down to it, with all the hours and work you are putting into your jobs, in caring for patients, do you really feel that 1)the workload is actually manageable - in other words, do the hours you are putting in make you so tired that you can't think anymore? And 2) Is it really worth it - are you in a sense really satisfied with what you are doing or are you burned out with everything?

    I was just wondering because I am getting mixed reviews from doctors I work with (I am premed student) and some of them are seriously steering me away from medicine, claiming that it is too complex, too much work and too much stress.

    Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated, thanks!
