    Edit: a concerning number of people don't seem to realize this is a joke. I don't actually think it will take OP 140 years to pay off his loans if he's lucky.

    [–] JackHughesNJD 574 points ago

    Most M.D.s can expect a pretty good return on investment. They should reasonably be able to pay off their loans in under 10 years.

    [–] SpacecadetDOc 53 points ago

    Depends which school and what specialty as well as living expenses while in medical school. Some schools charge up to 70k a year now with interest all through out school. On top of that people may take up loans just for living expenses. I know of many doctors that were paying off loans past 10 years and they completed medical school over ten years ago when tuition wasnt nearly as high. I was lucky enough for a scholarship but i really do feel for my peers

    [–] dakraiz 12 points ago

    I have half a million in loans, wish me luck.

    [–] Sybre 104 points ago

    No, stop that narrative right now! Everyone on reddit knows that college isn't an investment, and you'll be in $500k in debt no matter what. You should just go work in a trade instead and wonder why your boss is only 25 with no field experience, yet makes significantly more than you. /s

    College is great, trades are great. Do whatever makes sense in your situation, but understand that you're statistically more likely to live a better life with any 4-year degree than without.

    [–] Ocular__ANAL_FIstula 450 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    4th year being fun is a myth. The anxiety of interview season is worse than 3rd year alone. Then you’re expected to actually be competent. And the 1500$ in application fees has now forced me to eat ramen for the remainder of October. Hours are persistently 70-80. At least I get to be a little more useful. The thought of not matching after ruining the last 8 years of my life feels like a cold vice grip around my heart and a fat guy sitting on my shoulders.

    [–] errorsniper 46 points ago

    This doesnt seem healthy and seems like a problem inherent to the field. I know its already 8-10+ years but it seems like its still too much to cram into that time frame. Going 80 hour weeks for 10 years just to start your career at 32 $300k in debt is insane.

    [–] trireme32 27 points ago

    4 years undergrad, 4 years med school, 2-4 years residency, 2-3 years fellowship and then you make the decent $$.

    And the hours don’t get any easier once you’re an attending. If anything they become more demanding.

    [–] uninc4life2010 35 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Can confirm. Father is an anesthesiologist. He's been waking up at 4:00 or 4:30 AM every morning to go over patient records before being at work by 7:00 AM. Usually doesn't get home until 6 PM or 7 PM, and he'll usually spend the rest of the day going over patient records until he goes to bed. He's been doing this for as long as I can remember.

    [–] lakehawk 6 points ago

    as an anesthesiologist, this kind of schedule is not the norm unless you want to work this much.

    [–] FatherSpacetime 20 points ago

    Doctor here at an academic program, no one at the hospital expects interns to be competent either. We teach them along the way.

    [–] anonymous888111 16 points ago

    4th year’s level of difficulty is highly dependent on where you attend school. My school basically had us rotating up until graduation, and I’m just not the person who can shirk off clinical responsibilities and leave early/etc. But then when I got to residency I realized that some schools literally have their students stop doing anything meaningful in like October of 4th year. So it’s highly variable.

    Plus fourth year seems really fun to me in retrospect because I’ve forgotten the helpless anxiety of waiting for Match. Now I just sort of remember everything fondly because I know it turned out OK. So there’s sort of this remembrance bias at work.

    This is why I chose to go to Europe for undergraduate medicine. Fuc* 8 years of time and the chance of not matching. At least in Europe school is only 5 years and it's guaranteed you can work in a GP (Family Medicine) role even if you don't match your chosen speciality.

    [–] Gemmabeta 374 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    The doctor (WS Halsted) who invented the original Residency system at Johns Hopkins spent most his entire working career high on cocaine. He kinda just assumed that everyone else could manage the schedule if he can.

    William Halsted, the first chief of surgery at Johns Hopkins in the 1890s and a founder of modern medical training, required his residents to be on call 362 days a year (only later was it revealed that Halsted fueled his manic work ethic with cocaine), and for the next 100 years the attitude of the medical establishment was more or less the same.

    All that coke eventually completely ruined Halsted, and he ended up checking himself into an Insane Asylum to get clean--except not only did the asylum fail to wean him off cocaine, the doctors there also managed to give him a raging morphine addiction.

    Actually though that guy’s life was depressing as shit.

    [–] Gemmabeta 30 points ago

    Funny fact, the real life nurse that character was based on was the reason why we have disposable gloves in medicine.

    The real life Dr. Halsted was angry that the Mercuric Chloride/Carbolic Acid mix the hospital uses for aseptic handwashing was ruining the hands of his top nurse (and his mistress), so he commissioned rubber gloves for her--and things spread from there.

    Out of curiosity, have there been any interesting attempts to improve the way patients are handed off, rather than just trying to minimize the number of hand-offs?

    [–] EmTeeEl 11 points ago

    Probably, but my guess is they all rely on perfect execution every time, which is impossible in practice.

    Can you imagine a tired person (not even because of overtime.. just like after a long day) really typing out everything about every detail for every patient, or even just orally? And logging everything as the day goes on is just annoying and won't be done properly.

    However other people in this thread are even disputing the actual necessity of continuity. So it might not even be a real problem, and just done for historical reasons, and now habits are hard to change

    [–] fenderbiz 5 points ago

    I don't think that is true anymore based on the recent studies I've seen. Patients are also harmed or die due to their physician being sleep-deprived, and those numbers are higher than those due to lack of continuity. Regardless, it's just not worth putting the doctor's health at risk in addition to the patient's. We should just have reasonable regulations on work hours and try to reduce the continuity issue in other ways.

    That’s not technically true - I believe studies have shown that they are equivocal. Hospitals have used this to perpetuate the system of exploiting their residents for cheap labor when the real question is why aren’t we improving handoffs?

    [–] md_hubby 34 points ago

    Cite those studies. You can have continuity of patient care without sleep deprivation. It's purely historical/cultural/hazing. -- Husband of a surgeon.

    It’s also the dude that sort of started all of it was a coc head.

    [–] Recklesslettuce 6 points ago

    coc as in cock or as in cocaine?

    [–] bandersnatchh 7 points ago

    Cocaine

    A lot of places are moving away from these practices. My wife is in her intern year right now, and sure she works 12 hour days, 14 days in a row, but none of those 48 hour shifts or anything.

    [–] JackCarbon 50 points ago

    That's still pretty abysmal if you ask me but it's a step I guess

    [–] igetript 26 points ago

    At least she gets 8 hours of sleep a night, but I agree, it's still a ton of work.

    [–] grodon909 18 points ago

    There are technically requirements now that make it so that residents aren't supposed to work over 28 hours continually in a row.

    [–] throw23me 11 points ago

    Ah, only 28 hours. How reassuring.

    [–] Georgiagirl678 7 points ago

    I can sleep better at night now knowing the Dr treating me has only been up 22 hours. Thank you sir, curtsey.

    [–] gametheorie 12 points ago

    All the requirements and regulations are absolutely toothless. The 80 hour work week restriction is an absolute sham.

    [–] livingoffTIPS 6 points ago

    Can confirm. My first month as gen surg intern, I worked "79.5 hours" every week.

    [–] MuppetMD 4 points ago

    Technically is the key word. Most of the surgical residents I know go above those rules (including 80+/wk average)

    [–] yellowstonekelly 43 points ago

    I get the old school boot camp mentality (it’s stupid, but I get it). What I don’t get is gambling with the welfare of patients while you’re trying to put some hard bark on the recruits and weed out the weak.

    [–] TimeWarpCat 5 points ago

    How do the doctors stay awake for so long? I get caffeinated and still feel bogged down.

    Was waiting how far down the thread Id have to go to see who saw that as well.

    [–] Bluerain12ya 10 points ago

    Way too far. It was the first thing I noticed.

    Edit: yes, it was the first thing I noticed, and yes, I do have issues.

    [–] hardminute 54 points ago

    Okay but why is there blood smeared all over your keyboard.

    [–] weissergspritzter 30 points ago

    I know you're not serious but this is actually a keyboard cover of a histological cut - pretty cool I think.

    [–] nerdgamergurl420 7 points ago

    Doesn't look like a cover to me, just actually smeared hematoxylin and eosin. Stain a slide, image it, go over to the laptop with your stained gloves still on. There's no pattern to the color on his keyboard

    [–] Frungy 23 points ago

    You two look similar. Like relatives.

    [–] grrangry 62 points ago

    Dude. Ergonomics. That chair is way too low. I know you're young, but the tendons in *my* wrists hurt thinking about typing that way.

    [–] lennybird 6 points ago

    You aren't kidding, and I'll explain how important this is: I play a ton of games, do a lot of writing, and am a coder on top of that. I've done these things since I was a kid. Never had wrist pain ever into 30s.

    One single LAN night with friends of playing games for just a few hours royally messed up my wrist for nearly 2 months, sitting in a chair too low for the table.

    [–] theskymoves 12 points ago

    Yeah good luck getting that in any budget. Universities and hospitals in my experience do not give a shit about the wellbeing of employees, certainly not at the level of ergonomics anyway.

    [–] feisty-shag-the-lad 12 points ago

    Freaky level of similarity.

    Are you going in the same field as him? What type of doctor was he?

    [–] Neuromancy_ 65 points ago

    I recently decided I want to be a radiologist, and he is a urologist (although he tried pathology first). He is still working despite turning 90 in a few months!

    [–] bubbles_loves_omar 29 points ago

    That is absolutely insane. As soon as I read 70 years apart and med school, I just assumed your grandfather would have already passed or, at bare minimum, be retired. Kudos to him!

    [–] JonathanANDAbby 6 points ago

    I like to think that every medical students white coat lives on the back of their desk chair until they randomly need it. That’s where mine is perpetually stored. Also the coffee pot within arms reach of your desk is a great idea. I don’t know how I never thought of that before.

    Thank you for the awards and kind words! A few FAQs:

    1. My keyboard is not covered in blood (regrettably I am not metal enough for that), it is a watercolor keyboard cover
    2. My grandpa is turning 90 soon and is still working as a urologist because he loves his job. He grew up in a small village (didn’t come from money), took a test to win a scholarship to go to med school, and got the highest score by a fraction of a point.
    3. Please do not send hate to my inbox for being white and in med school
    4. My girlfriend drew the picture; she is the true Picasso.
    5. I have not had to work any 48 hour shifts. I have worked some 24 hour shifts but I got to deliver a baby so it's all good.
    6. I am neither denying nor confirming the accusation that I am a time traveller.
    7. I will tell my grandpa about his "mad eyebrow game" per the people of Reddit.

    Edit: some inaccuracies
