    Lose-Lose Gridlock

    Thank you in advance for your advice. I’m having trouble in residency and thinking of trying to find an alternative. I will try to stay vague so my PD doesn’t learn about this from SDN somehow. I matched into my top choice and I’m loving the program. It’s a very poor hospital system with tons...

    Will CVS rehire an intern that quit?

    Hi, I am wondering how difficult it is to be hired as a pharmacist by CVS if you previously worked as an intern/tech for a few years, but resigned while in pharmacy school. Any input or anecdotal stories are appreciated.

    Should I leave social work?- What’s next?

    Hi, Before I ask the quearions in the post title, let me give some background on my qualifications and career path up to this point. I have wanted to be a therapist since I was in high school. Since then I have always openly explored my options and challenged that career goal as I was in...

    I quit my Scribe Job & ScribeAmerica Review.

    In many ways, this position was to die for. I worked for physicians in a competitive IM subspecialty, many well known, a few easily nationally recognized. Here's why I quit: It's finals week and they wanted me to work 4 days 6AM-5PM, one day in the satellite clinic 2 hours away. Outpatient...

    Toxic job

    I need some advice on how to handle quitting a vet assistant job I got at the beginning of November. The doctor that owns and manages the practice, knows the doctor that I also work for as a kennel technician. Some information about what has been going on: I originally reached out the clinic...

    E cigarettes as a cessation method?

    Hello everyone, I am working on a research project on e-cigarrettes. I have combed through scholarly journals already, I am interested in YOUR (the practitioner) thoughts. 1. Do you recommend e-cigarettes to patients as a smoking- or chewing-tobacco cessation tool? 2. Have patients asked...

    Concerns about fellowship

    Congratulations to everyone who matched today! I have some concerns that I know will appear foolish to most, but I'm hoping for some advice to help me sift through everything going through my head right now. I'm just applied and matched into a GI fellowship program. Within the past 3 weeks...

    Consequences of Quitting Fellowship as 1st year Fellow

    I started a 2 year IM fellowship this past July and am having serious thoughts about quitting. After going through med school and a fairly rigorous IM residency, I don't think I am a quitter. But this program can not be described as anything other than malignant. I feel much less respected as a...

    Quitting and coming back?

    So I really couldn't find the right place to ask this, if you know please do tell. So the situation is this: You're a trauma surgeon working at some city hospital for around 10 years now, and lets say you're at the ripe age of 40ish and you and all your old army buddies are planning to do the...

    Stay or Leave?

    Hey everyone, So usually I don’t do this but I’m in dire need of help and thought I would turn to you all for advice. This is a little long so bear with me. I’m currently in my first year of family medicine residency (about 5 months in) and I don’t like it. It’s not even my program or the...

    Quit research or stick it out?

    So I'm in a bit of a predicament. I've been volunteering for a research lab since my freshman summer, for 20+ hours a week (for free!!). I'm in the honors program which requires you to publish a thesis, which is why I started research in the first place. This past summer I finally got paid for...

    Done with considering medicine as a career???

    I'm back again SDN. I've been on SDN for a whole year now. I've found a couple of useful tips and resources...for people who already has something established. Unfortunately, I'm not that person. I've barely taken any science classes. I purposely took non-science(electives) so I could transfer...

    Gap year dilemma: to quit or not to quit

    I'm at a bit of a cross roads. I took two years off (graduated may 2015) to retake my MCAT and apply to med school. My retake went well (516, 95th percentile) and the rest of my application is solid (3.9 GPA with a BS in bio, 3 other research opportunities, a publication from another lab in a...
