"This profession does infringe on your personal life," confesses Dr. Walters, who says it would be impossible to meet her demanding schedule with a husband or children. "This really is my life here at the hospital." But working a minimum 11-hour day ("People don't get sick from just 9 to 5") is not without rewards.
