Abstract [en]

Doctors are a professional group that is particularly interesting to investigate as they have difficulty in distinguishing the difference between their work-life and social-life. This allows doctors to get a fairly diffused balance between work and privacy. The purpose of this study is to investigate how doctors percieve their occupation and how their occupational choices affect the identity in their everyday life. The empirical material is based on six semi- structured interviews of doctors who have helped us answer our questions. Since occupational identity is difficult to measure, we have assumed the respondents own subjective perceptions and are compared with previous research on the subject. To measure this, the study is based on a qualitative method. The community's trust and expectations are two examples of what determines how doctors identify with their profession. The study will identify additional examples of how doctors percieve themselves in the workplace and in their social life. The study is based on the thory emotional labour and dramaturgical analysis. Earlier research shows that today's generation of workers' greatest challenge is to achieve a well-functioning balance between work and privacy, something that physicians often struggle with. Doctors in the United States tend to work more, the longer and higher education the person has. A parallel as we can also see in Swedish doctors. Helping friends and acquaintances with medical advice was something that all the respondents had experience with. This demonstrates that the line between a doctor's work and privacy can be greatly affected by this factor, as doctors are required to go into their medical role even in their private time.
