I would seriously consider a part-time residency in a number of fields. I previously did two years of general surgery residency and then decided that the lifestyle was not what I wanted for my family. I had my first child a month after finishing my second year of residency and elected not to go back. I now have four children and now that we’re finished having children, am trying to figure out what specialty to pursue. A part-time residency would be great. I have been doing life insurance physicals very part-time and love working and really am excited about medicine again but know I would rather not work full-time until my youngest is in first grade–about 5 years from now. If anyone is interested in part-time FP, Internal medicine, psychiatry, or PM&R, in the Chicago area, I would be interested in talking to you! Thanks!
