The training to becoming a doctor is quite the juggling act. Time feels like a rare commodity despite having a never-ending to-do list. And shoot! Exams are coming up, and you're on call this weekend.

It feels like all we do is study and work with no time left over for anything else.

The time you used to have to be with friends, visit family, and enjoy your hobbies is gone. And it’s tough…

But guess what? You can still have a life and be a doctor!

Today’s episode features Dr. Alison Early who reached a HUGE milestone in her career: finishing her residency training in ophthalmology. As if being a resident isn’t hard enough, Alison had her first child during (yes, during) residency and is now tapping on the door of starting her practice with a newborn.
