What kind of hours do military surgeons work?

Postby amberiya on 08 Jul 2009 07:34

What kind of hours do military surgeons work? Do all military physicians really work 40 hours a week?
I am a medical student and HPSP participant. I was initially leaning away from surgery as my choice in profession because I want to have free time to spend with my family. But it seems I read somewhere that the military (Air Force in this case) only has their doctors work 40 hours a week and they get 30 days of paid vacation, unlimited sick leave, as well as holidays. Can it be true?

amberiya...this is a gaming forum and you are quite off topic. In answer to your question, some of our guys are ex-military but you
should ask that question to your local recruitment office. They should
be able to help you. and...Good Luck! We always need Doctors.

Whatever, as we are in "off topic" so we can discuss anything here!

And, just to answer the question, the military does not work with a set number of hours. When I joined, they only guaranteed me one hour of sleep a day and one meal. Medics and police were even worse off. They work when required. No rest for the weary as they say. So don't think about a nine to five job with the military.
LINUX! Don't fight it. You will be assimilated!
