RESEARCH METHODOLOGY This chapter provides the methodology used in the research such as the data gathering procedure. It is composed of the research design, research locale, selection of the study, research instrument, data gathering procedure and data analysis.
Research Design
The function of the research design is to guarantee that the research problem will be answered clearly. Research design provides a framework on how the researchers came about with the phenomenological approach.
Waters (2000) stated that the goal of qualitative phenomenological research is to describe “lived experiences” of a phenomenon. As this is a qualitative analysis of narrative traditional or quantitative methods of research.
This study is centered on

Selection of Study The selection of three (3) male or female licensed medical doctors who are married, has children and living with his/her own family.

Sampling Procedure This study focuses on the “Lived Experiences of Medical Doctors in balancing their responsibilities between work and family.” In tons of medical doctors in Metro Manila, the researchers only selected three (3) respondents. The respondents are selected using purposive sampling technique. The researchers selected medical doctors who are licensed doctor, married, has some child/children, and have its own family that are based in Metro Manila.

Research Instrument The following instruments were used by the researchers in data gathering:
1. INFORMED CONSENT. Guaranteed the privilege of the selection including the degree of secrecy and the essence of the study. The researchers sought the approval from the respondents who participated in the study through the informed consent which either they declined or

The researchers took down interesting or significant words/phrases the respondents said. As we continue to read the transcript, the researchers were able to comment on similarities and differences.
• Connecting the Themes
The researchers listed the themes that were gathered in a sheet of paper and looked for connections. The list that is made is in chronological order, based on the sequence the researchers came up in the collected data. This stage involves analytical and theoretical ordering, for the researchers are trying to see the connection of the themes to one another. The themes might cluster together while the rest might be a superordinate concepts.
• Continuing the Analysis with Other Cases
The respondent’s transcript is written as a case study in its own right, as the analysis were moved on to incorporate interviews with a number of different individuals. The other can use the themes from the first case to put the table of themes for respondent 1 aside, and work for 2nd transcript. Acknowledge new issues as one works through the transcripts and the other one have to be disciplined and discern. Through the Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA), the researchers were able to distinguish the similarities and differences of the co-researchers’
