Should Women Be Doctors?

There is a very interesting article (and debate in the comments) over at the New York Times online about the stresses working women (and men) face when they have to split their time between work and family. This particular essay focuses on female doctors. On one side, it is mentioned that women need to consider how cutting hours to be with family might affect their patients, and on the other side it’s pointed out that perhaps the work stucture itself is archaic, and that changes need to be made to accomodate working parents, no matter their gender. What do you guys think? The link is below.
