    As a father of 2 young kids (3 and 0.25) I have been thinking more about this. It’s great that you put your thoughts into a list. I think my list would be very similar for the pros and cons. As a radiation oncologist I don’t struggle with call like you may as a cardiologist, but I have suffered from burnout and compassion fatigue and I pull a very busy 55-60 hours Plus director duties.

    Burnout and compassion fatigue were not a big deal before kids because I could come home, work out, relax and hang out with my wife for a bit. However with kids, it’s the kids who suffer because I can’t vent the buildup. I’m flat exhausted and as you said no tolerance for toddlers. I don’t want that for my kids so I am slowly forming opionins against medicine as a career for them. Too late for me though, the only option is to cut back which means I better not be living the “doctor lifestyle” paycheck to paycheck (which were not, thanks in part to white cost investor) I’ve never heard of the sunk cost fallacy, makes sense though.

      Great point. Compassion fatigue. I had to stop listening to NPR on the drive home. I cannot do it anymore. A long day of work talking to people and then a drive listening to NPR. Finally you get home and have to be ready for your kids and spouse. So for me, I stopped listening to NPR and it gives me a 10-20 minute break to reset before heading home.

    Congratulations on the guest post, DDD! It was well done and I think it will generate a lot of discussion among physicians.
