I just wanted to get advice on the following situation: I am currently a pharmacy student finishing up my 1st yr. Although I like pharmacy, I have always seen myself as a physician, not a pharmacist. I don't have anything against pharmacy, but I want more clinical contact with patients, as opposed to counseling. In addition to this, I find courses such as anatomy, physiology, etc...more interesting than Kinetics and the like. I was premed all the way through undergrad and suddenly changed to pharmacy b/c of a few reasons. First, I thought that maybe I could not handle med. school, which I now know I can. Second, I had just got married and really did not want to strain our relationship, esp. as newly weds. Although my wife tells me to do what makes me happy, I know she dreads the possibility of not seeing much of me during med school. Is it really true that med students have to sacrifice their family for school? or can they balance both? Also, I really can't afford to waste anymore years thinking about this since I'm not getting any younger. Finally, I don't have the energy (nor finances) to do both pharmacy and med. It has to be one or the other. So, what do you guys think? stick w/pharmacy and get over myself or switch?
