Evaluation of satisfaction with work–life balance among U.S. Gynecologic Oncology fellows: A cross-sectional study



open access

Highlights
Most gynecologic oncology fellows are not satisfied with their work–life balance.
Working 80 h per week or more predicts dissatisfaction with work–life balance.
Satisfied fellows plan to work 3.5 years longer than those who are not satisfied.

 Unlike those other specialties, gynecologic oncology has a high proportion of female physicians and is sensitive to factors that differentially affect careers based on gender (Wallace et al., 2010 and Gordinier et al., 2000). Among medical oncologists, dissatisfaction with WLB (work life balance)  is associated with plans to reduce clinical hours and leave current medical practice (Shanafelt et al., 2014a). The purpose of this study was to characterize the current state of satisfaction with work–life balance among gynecologic oncology fellows and the impact of that balance on future career plans.
