To compliment my thread here: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=521179 So with all of the discouraging "Whatever you do, don't go into medicine!" threads, seeing the physician I work for live her miserable life, and then the whole... you know... me not getting into medical school thing d), I'm facing some serious decisions here. Part of me is shooting up red flags saying that I should consider other career options. I need some encouragement in the other direction here! To counter all of the negative threads, let's start a thread reminding each other why it is amazing to go into medicine and all the positives of the field. Input from experienced medical school students, residents, and practicing physicians is especially appreciated.
