The Not-So-Private Lives of Young Doctors

Why is it so important to scrutinize the social activities of young doctors when so many of them are sacrificing themselves and their loved ones to treat patients with COVID-19? Doesn’t that say enough about their character?

Well apparently several physicians affiliated with Boston University felt otherwise. After collecting data between 2016 and 2018 about the prevalence of unprofessional social medical content among young vascular surgeons, they felt it necessary to publish their findings in the August (2020) Journal of Vascular Surgery.
