Heart Doctors Have The Most Hazardous Occupation In The World

There isn’t any such thing as an ordinary life.

– Lucy Maud Montgomery

Sacrifice is part of the great tradition of medicine, a tradition that compels doctors into one of the most hazardous occupations. The list of dangers is actually quite long; risk for communicable illnesses, both common and rare; workplace violence both physical and verbal, stresses that lead to extremely high rates of burnout, depression, substance abuse and suicide that outpace other professions ( of similar level of education, gender, generation) but also some serious occupational hazards and injuries like the radiation injury. Each and every practicing doctor has been touched by these issues, either directly or as witness, however, individuals entering the profession often have limited understanding of the potential long-term consequences that are often understated or ignored.
