I was wondering what non-trads, who have already gone through medical school and residency, think about their decision to go into medicine. What type of job did you have before? Why did you quit? Are you happy with your decision or do you wish you stuck with your original career?

After a long thread with a few pointless side-arguments...TL,DR...some regret it some don't.

From your username, it would be fair to say that you're a nontrad med student...What would you say about your experience and your opinion about your choice?

Oh yeah, that's what I kind of expected this thread to end up being. I couldn't find a thread that asked non trad physicians who've finished training. I just find posts about people who are planning on going into medicine after quitting their jobs, so I asked this question. I'm sure I didn't look hard enough.

I tried posting in another section, but sdn moved my post to the pre-med section.

I'm an MS1, I cant really tell you anything other than anatomy is hard and cutting into cadavers at first is weird, but then you get used to it. Make sure you know what and why you are getting into this. We are slightly more than a month into it and have already lost two people because "it's hard."

Also if you do get to med school you always have the option to laugh or cry. Always choose to laugh.
