Cartoon – Divorce Among Physicians and other Professionalsby Shaheen E Lakhan, MD, PhD, MEd, MS | May 9, 2015
A team of researchers reviewed US census data from 2008 to 2013 and looked at divorce data for healthcare and non-healthcare professionals. They found the divorce prevalence to be 24.3% for physicians, 25.2% dentists, 22.9% pharmacists, 33.0% nurses, 30.9% healthcare executives, 26.9% lawyers, and 35.0% other non-healthcare professionals. They concluded that “divorce among physicians is less common than among non-healthcare workers and several health professions.”
