I'm in need of advice (aren't we all). I've recently reevaluated my life and what's most important to me and have decided that I want being a doctor to be what I do and not who I am. I want to be able to place my family first and my job second (at least 98% of the time) meaning more regular hours and better dependability. I've considered my options as choosing a different residency such as ER, Rad, or Derm (none particularly interest me) or a different, nonclinical career path. I'd like a career that I still feel makes a difference and a decent income so paying back loans isn't a tremendous stress. I've been considering some of the dual degree programs such as the MD- MPH/MHA/MBA. I'd like to hear from others what are some career ideas that aren't just about making money (I've read some of the MD/MBA discussions) but offer a comparable income utilizing the MD- MPH,MHA, or MBA degrees (I'm more interested in MPH or MHA). Also, the question of residency and which residency would be best suited for something like hospital admin. I'm sorry if this is rehashing some old topics but I'd like to get thoughts all organized in one place. Thank you all so very much.
