Thank you everyone for your input. I have definitely thought about everything that has been brought up in this thread.
As far as explaining to future employers why I left my residency, I wouldn't think it would be a major issue because 1) this program is becoming known for being a harsh environment, and 2) I don't have a history of job hopping or quitting or anything like that. Then again, it might be a bigger issue than I think it would be. I just don't know.
If I knew for certain that finishing this residency would lead to something better, then I would be a lot more willing to stick it out. But I don't know. No one knows. Most of the clinical jobs in my area are few and far between. My classmates had problems getting jobs -- I'm still not sure if they are all employed -- and I fear that by the time I finish this residency, even all the non-residency jobs will be taken by the class of 2012.
Yes, this job offer could end up being crappy. I've tried to do my research and ask around. I've heard good things about the work environment and the company. Then again, you never know until you are in the situation.
I don't consider myself thin-skinned or overly sensitive. I was in another profession for many years prior to going into pharmacy, and I experienced verbal assaults quite frequently and was able to handle it. I've also worked retail for 5 years and never had a problem dealing with the crazies. I guess it just depends on what you are willing to put with, and I'm not sure if this residency is worth putting up with. I wish I could go into more detail about what I have to deal with, but I don't feel comfortable giving out that much information.
Anyway, thanks again everyone for your thoughts. I appreciate it.
