Working in medicine demands an enormous amount of dedication and effort, which often results in grueling work schedules that require doctors and other medical professionals to put in upwards of 80 hours of work per week, six days a week. This rigorous schedule leaves little time for rest, recovery, and a healthy work-life balance. Quality patient care is jeopardized when our own mental, emotional, and physical health is at risk. In S6E8, Margaux, Lina, and Mariam candidly discuss the history of the 40-hour workweek, and why, for those working in medicine, that number can double.
