I think it totally depends on what field you go into. I would say that every field has their own "bread and butter" that you start seeing day in and day out. Your practice setting also matters (academic vs. stand alone hospital vs. private practice). One good thing about medicine is that you have a lot of flexibility to pick a field where you actually like treating that field's bread and butter, and you can generally choose what kind of setting you want to practice in as well.I am on the fence between medicine and another career. I have a year before I apply to professional school. I preferred my physician shadowing, but I liked my shadowing in the other profession too.
One thing on my pro list for applying to medical school is that I need a lot of intellectual stimulation in my life and that appeals to me about being a physician. I like that they use xyz RCT and actively apply that to clinical care.
I have heard that medicine gets boring when people reach a certain point. Does it get "mind-numbing" though (I'm sorry I can't think of a better word)?
I love my job and find it very intellectually stimulating. But it did take me a long, long time to complete my training, and I chose an academic path where while I get to treat a bunch of very complex and interesting patients I also have to deal with everything that comes with academia. That might not appeal to everyone.
