Residency Stress Rankings

Posted by medliorator on January 7, 2009

One medical student’s perspective:

  1. General Surgery
  2. OB/Gyn – there’s relatively less ‘control’ / predictability over how patients will do from what I’ve seen.
  3. Internal Medicine – again, just biased by what I see the residents go through
  4. Surgical Subspecialties – stressful to train, but I think it gets easier in the career itself.
  5. Emergency Medicine – while the career is good, I think the fact that these are ’emergencies’ is stress inducing on its own, plus who wants to do overnight shifts when they’re 60?
