Cardiologists are surgeons who diagnose, treat, monitor and prevent diseases or conditions of the cardiovascular system, according to the BLS. Some specialize in procedures designed to treat heart conditions, such as balloon angioplasty and stenting. Others focus their work on echocardiography, the use of electrodes to examine and treat the heart's chambers, or on electrophysiology, which involves the heart's electrical system. Cardiologists usually work during normal working hours, but that can turn into a 50-60-hour workweek depending on the volume of patients and heart-related events over which they have no control.
Even with a regular schedule, someone needs to be available or on call during nights, weekends, and holidays. The BLS defines anesthesiologists as doctors who “administer anesthetics and analgesics to control pain before, during, or after surgery.” This highly specialized career is second in the list of highest-earning professions. An anesthesiologist's working hours can be long and unpredictable, as they follow the operating room schedule. Anesthesiologists must be present for both scheduled surgeries and emergency procedures, adding to the unpredictable nature of the workday.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons treat a wide range of diseases, injuries, and defects in and around the mouth and jaw. Among the most common problems they're likely to treat are wisdom teeth, misaligned jaws, and tumors and cysts in the jaw and mouth. They can also perform dental implant surgery. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons work for hospitals, large medical centers and dental offices.
They can be dental school teachers or supervisors of residents in training. Many oral and maxillofacial surgeons open their own offices. They work long hours performing intricate and complex surgeries. Oral surgeons may also need to be on call in case of emergencies that require immediate treatment.
On average, a general surgeon works 50 to 60 hours per week (not including time available for on-call duty). Depending on the practice, surgeons can be on call nearly 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Most clinical pathologists work in clinical laboratories in general hospitals and clinics, although some work in university research clinics. Because of the nature of their industry, facilities that operate with 24-hour laboratories will have pathologists on staff during the night and on weekends.
While they're very well paid, many CEOs have overwhelming schedules. A Harvard Business Review survey revealed that the average CEO spends 62.5 hours a week working, with approximately half of the time spent in the office and the other half traveling. Before becoming information systems managers, people typically have several years of experience in a related field. In general, larger organizations require more experienced IT managers than smaller companies or startups.
According to the BLS, a chief technology officer (CTO), who oversees the entire technology function of a larger organization, will often need more than 15 years of IT experience. American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. EE. UU.
