As life expectancy increases, so do the years of productive life. The 21st century has brought about a significant change in the concepts of youth and age. There are various reasons why doctors continue to work after they are legally entitled to retirement. How do we see the age of our colleagues, how do we see our own age? Is it possible to maintain one’s qualifications to match modern standards? There is an age limit for many professions, but it is not applied to doctors. Should it apply? Are young doctors aware of what they would lose if the older generation would no longer be around?
