    Probably you guys get this question a lot but here goes. I am a subspecialist and currently make good income in a practice we own. Last year we netted about 550k per partner, this year likely 600, and hoping to be around 750k withing in 3 years. Of course this is all assuming medicare decides not to f#ck us on a whim, which really is what makes medicine so stressful...the uncertainty. So I guess my question is, based on income numbers like this, is it worth moving into a more business related aspect of medicine (pharma, hosp management, etc). I like business, I manage our investments and do a lot of real estate property investment on the side. thoughts?

    Dude's a gas-trained pain doc based on his prior posts.

    Now, I have no idea what the future holds, but those are damn good numbers. I'd keep at it. If the rug's pulled out from under you, then you can transition. Until that time, I'd stick with the practice, even if you hate it. You can retire easily on that amount if you give it a few years.

    I would also caution about listing numbers on an open forum. Such things serve as ammunition against you.

    Hell no I wouldn't leave. You would not make much more money being in business. You actually may make less. Plus, you would lose the job security

    What does gas-trained mean? Sorry, but since I'm premed, I don't know what a lot of things mean.

    I'm not positive about this, but I'm guessing they mean gastroenterology.

    'Gas-trained' = Anesthesiology.
