...then why am I so unhappy? I just started my third year and the hours are driving me nuts. Don't get me wrong I love medicine and have done well in the first two years but I really don't think that I can handle the next 5+ years of 60-80 hour work weeks. Is there any one else out there that feels similarly? Personally I think I would be much happier if I was in an MBA program. Anyone out there with any advice? Any of you physicians that are in practice and have already been through House Officer Hell? Are there any work opportunities for someone who just completes the M.D. and does not complete a residency?
