  1. Given the lack of continuity of an anesthesiologist’s role, do you consider them to be physicians or more as a technician? (somewhat like a radiologist who has very limited pt contact and almost no continuity as well)

    Hence no long lasting patient/doctor relationship.

    • Definitely physician more than technician. We don’t have as much continuity as surgeons do, but you better believe they love the fact that we exist and the amount of medicine that we know. We essentially serve as an intensivist, pharamcist, and cardiologist all rolled into one package.

  2. Hello there,

    This is Jackson from debtreviews.com. I really enjoyed your post “DIY Personal Finance” and am impressed by how well you’ve done with thephysicianphilosopher.com.

    I’ve been writing up articles on the categories that are covered on your blog and would love the chance to write on your blog. I’d be happy to send over a new article as thanks!

    Please let me know if you are interested.


  3. My daughter is applying to medical school. She has also begun the process to have the army pay for her school and residency, with 4 years or more of active service. This is her plan to avoid the debt load. Her service years she will not have a salary of that as her peers with student debt. Would this be even in terms of cash flow? Much lower salary vs much higher salary with a high debt load?

    • Have to run the numbers. Amount of debt without Army. Amount of debt with. Income without army (Civilian) versus income in army. If your debt burden isn’t substantial, the military often produces less income and that catches up the longer you stay in (or the longer service commitment that is required).

      That said, serving in the military is not just a financial decision. A lot to consider that is much more important than money.
