A recent meeting of the Pan-Pacific Surgical Society, Roger Crumley, MD, introduced a slide (Table 1) depicting the long professional lives of otolaryngologists.
It demonstrates strates that otolaryngologists may enjoy the longest period of professional productivity of specialists recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
Nine nonagenarians responded to our survey, affirming otolaryngologists'longevity.
One currently is in part-time practice at 94 years and 2 retired last year at 91 years.
Recent conversations with many of our colleagues, however, suggested to us that more otolaryngologists were considering shorter, not longer, periods of medical practice.
