Romance in Primary Care
- Most were set in primary care or emergency medicine settings.
- The most common pairing was between a male doctor and a female doctor followed by a male doctor and a female nurse.
- There was a "marked preponderance of brilliant, tall, muscular, male doctors with chiselled features" and "skilled, beautiful and determined, but still compassionate" female doctors and nurses.
- "Protagonists of both sexes had frequently neglected their personal lives to care better for their patients..."
I did find two significant departures from reality however. First of all, anyone who's following the cataclysmic fall in physicians continuing on in primary care, point number four seemed a bit overplayed. More physicians seem to be neglecting their practices to better live their personal lives than the reverse.
Second, I wouldn't describe my features as "chiselled".
