Many female physicians struggle with an over-desire to work. This has typically evolved through the influences of our home environment growing up, societal expectations, what was expected of us in our training, what was taught to us by our mentors/attendings, and by comparing ourselves to others.
While this workshop is focused on stopping overworking behaviour in medicine, it is important to note that women work hard on many different areas of their lives including the state of their home, child-rearing, their physical appearance, in addition to working longer hours for less pay in medicine.
