    Just like the rest of America, it depends who employs them.

    A Dr on hospital staff probably starts out at 1 week and works up to 4 or 5 weeks just like all hospital staff

    If in a 1 person private practice they can take as much vacation as they want. I used to work with 1 Dr who took 2 2week vacations every year

    About a third to a half of physicians get in 2-4 weeks of vacation time a year. Like their fellow Americans, however, over a third (38.3%) of family physicians and almost as many emergency medicine physicians (35.3%), internists (33.9%), and general surgeons (32.5%) take off for 2 weeks a year at most.

    As few, or as many as each individual wishes or is contractually permitted. There is no national standard.

    Varies widely. No absolute way to answer this.
