Hi you non-trads! Are you pursuing med school, dental school, something else? Just curious to see how diverse/uniform we are!?

P.S. If you're "pre" anything (e.g. pre-med) just choose the general area (e.g. medicine).

Definitely medicine. I found an internal medicine niche that is almost too good to be true: Hospitalists! Where else can you start $150k+ productivity bonus, all insurance paid, and have a 7 on 7 off schedule (No call)??

I'm sure some of the surgical specialties, etc. have similar benefits and such but thats damn good for internal medicine
:laugh:

I voted for MD and PhD. I hope I answered correctly....

I really like the idea of a hospitalist too but I haven't been able to find much about it on the web. Can you post some links for me?

You can start here. If you look in the FAQ section of the internal medicine forum here you can find a few other good links as well.

If you're applying MD/PhD, check out the physician scientist forum further down the page. :)
