In contrast, I have recent written and telephone reports of the oldest living graduates, including myself, from the University of Chicago's medical school. The age range of these graduates was 70 to 96, the average 84. A few of these graduates were psychiatrists who were still working a little, but several of the female psychiatrists had happily retired. In general, surgeons retired in their early 60s, internists in their late 60s. Most of the University of Chicago group reported that they were enjoying retirement in literary or artistic pursuits, gardening, travel, golf, or just observing grandchildren.
