  1. When doctors marry doctors : A survey exploring the professional and family lives of young physicians.

    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    Soon, half of all physicians may be married to other physicians (that is, in dual-doctor families).

    Little is known about how marriage to another physician affects physicians themselves.

    Objective 

    To learn how physicians in dual-doctor families differ from other physicians in their professional and family lives and in their perceptions of career and family.

    Design 

    Cross-sectional survey.

    Setting 

    Two medical schools in Ohio.

    Participants 

    A random sample of physicians from the classes of 1980 to 1990.

    Measurements 

    Responses to a questionnaire on hours worked, income, number of children, child-rearing arrangements, and perceptions about work and family.

    Results 

    Of 2000 eligible physicians, 1208 responded (752 men and 456 women).

    Twenty-two percent of male physicians and 44% of female physicians were married to physicians (P<0.001).

    Men and women in dual-doctor families differed (P<0.001) from other married physicians in key aspects of their professional and family lives : They earned less money, less often felt that their career took precedence over their spouse's career, and more often played a major role in child-rearing.

    These differences were greater for female physicians than for male physicians.

    Men and women in dual-doctor families were similar to other physicians in the frequency with which they achieved career goals and goals for their children and with which they felt conflict between professional and family roles. (...)
