The personal lives of the Grey's Anatomy characters are more dramatic than most, and coupled with their chaotic jobs at Seattle Grace Hospital, it's no wonder they're constantly strung out. Surgeons have the most stressful jobs compared to all the rest, according to a recent list compiled by CareerCast. Twenty-one stress factors like deadlines, life-and-death situations, and physical demands were considered to determine the rankings, and given the pressure-filled long hours that go with being a surgeon, it's hard to think of a more stressful job.
Here are the rest of the professions that topped the most stressful list; not that the job of photojournalist isn't highly demanding and tiring, but I'm surprised to see it ranked third.
- Commercial Airline Pilot
- Advertising Account Executive
- Real Estate Agent
- Physician (General Practice)
- Reporter (newspaper)
- Physician Assistant
