    My vote goes to whoever takes the larger amount of drugs. If by burnout you mean that?

    Again, what is the constant obsession with comparison to med students? You think over in their forum they constantly compare themselves to us. Uh, no :rolleyes:

    Depends when you are talking about, def us during the first 2 years with things like GRD lab, but then they make it up in residency being on call for like 20 hours.

    i can't speak for any other school, but definately dental students at Columbia... we're in their [medical] basic science classes then we have a trillion other dental classes...and exams in b/n those classes we share... but either way, somehow you manage to get thru it.... :sleep:
     
  11. I think it is the individual. Some people are more likely to burn out than others under stress.

    Both are just as stressful.
