Are physicians who elect to work part-time violating some sacred aspect of their calling? In his latest Time.com column, LDI Senior Fellow Zack Meisel explores the medical student response to that idea promoted earlier this year in a New York Times op-ed piece by Dr. Karen Silbert. The panel of Penn med students who are the voices of the column pushed back against Silbert's opinion that doctors are so "special," they should work more hours than other professions. Meisel is an emergency room physician and Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at Penn's Perelman School of Medicine.
