To the Editor We read with great interest the study by Johnson et al.1 In this US national survey of 3807 participating surgeons (3166 men and 639 women), more than 70% were subspecialty surgeons. Although women had significantly lower career satisfaction than men (77% vs 82%), the associations between career satisfaction and personal life factors were largely similar between genders. Although this is inspiring, we have the following comments.
