Hi guys, It's pretty sad, but I'm just now realizing that I became a doctor primarily because of family expectations. I finished an internal medicine residency, and I hate primary care. I am certain that I want to leave clinical medicine, but I don't know what else to do with my life. This is also not a mood swing as I've gotten comments from people that while I can do a decent job as a doctor, I clearly don't seem happy. My interests are in consumer technology, i.e., gadgets. My passion is in helping the working poor. I very much believe in helping the underdog, especially outside of America or in minority populations in America. What I realized that I truly dislike about primary care is: 1. Demanding patients 2. Paperwork 3. Lack of control over schedule 4. Being on call I realized that I simply do not have the personality to speak to, comfort, and be patient day in and day out without completely draining myself and feeling abused. I simply need my own life back. I still want to help people, but indirectly. I am absolutely certain that I seeing patients more than 10% of the time will be too much for me. What are my options now? Any advice, bad or good, or abuse, would be appreciated. Someone give me a future.
