    Do any of you guys in ENT or Derm regret it, or would you absolutely make the same choice?  I’m not afraid of hard work and honestly in a different world (ie. 30 years ago) I would do full-scope family medicine but I don’t think it makes sense nowadays with a future wife who probably won’t clear 6 figures and the expansion of midlevels and unreasonable amounts of paperwork in primary care.

    I would love to work in the suburbs, which is where I think a generalist ENT would have a good scope of practice.  If I am operating 1-2 days week, and my OR days are from 7-6pm, does the lifestyle really end up that bad?  Is it hard to work < 50 hours as an ENT? Obviously ENT residencies can have almost twice as many hours as a derm residency, but once you are out in practice is it that bad?  I love surgery, but also think I wouldn’t go crazy if I was stuck with more minor surgeries like wide excisions, lipomas, etc.  I just don’t think I could do hospitalist or peds where there really are almost no hands on procedures.
