I think those are the 3 branches of medicine. Anyways, what branch are you going into? and why?
1 year in research has been enough . . . I can't stand it anymore! I could be down with working in a teaching hospital and spending some time teaching the med students and residents that come through my department. No way I am teaching classes though!
Clinical. I prefer to work more closely with patients. It keeps me in a positive mood.
Private practice--very high earning potential, no significant research obligations, get to focus almost entirely on the outcomes of my patients
Why not research or academic?
research--SUCKS (if I wanted to become a researcher I would have pursued just a PhD)
academic--don't want to worry about my underlings (med students, interns, and residents) screwing something up, because I'm the one that would get sued; pay isn't that great relative to private practice; "publish or perish" sucks ass
I want it all!!!
Best of all worlds. Clinical Research at an Academic University Hospital. Cheesy, I know.
Why not do them all? Academic clinical research
I'm hoping this summer I can do exactly that--right now I work at a pharmaceutical company doing clinical research. Shoot for the stars, folks.
Yeah, in practice it doesn't break down that cleanly. There are many doctors in community (non-academic) hospitals that are doing research, and many faculty at academic institutions are doing a lot of clinical work along with their research. You can do all of it if you want to.
