Haha! 5-6 med students in my class PAID FOR an extra year to go to [famous business school] so that they wouldn't have to be doctors. They think that consulting for McKinsey will save them from the horrible hours and thankless nature of residency. My feeling? The joke's on them. Consulting is no panacea; AND after they work you to the bone, they will lay you off. At least in medicine there is some job security.
"Hi, Welcome to Wal-Mart".
During my "I hate medicine and don't want to do residency" phase, I considered consulting too, but it seemed REALLY hard.
There are times I'm jealous of the people who work at Walmart.
You could always do pathology, if you didn't want to see the patient (most of the time, anyway).
This reminds me of Neela on ER. She kinda chose the last one, before ultimately becoming a surgeon. (Yeah, I know, I wish I knew exam material as well as ER episodes.)Also, hi, I love your cartoons. :)
haha.. this cartoon reminds me when I sat in the medical class for the first time.... I hate chemical medicine...http://ewwing.com
came across this referring to this cartoon of yours: http://blogs.jwatch.org/hiv-id-observations/index.php/amusing-medical-cartoons-and-humor-in-medicine/2010/05/09/
Hi, If you look into this site there are more job openings for freshers and experienced in various categories.
Nice. I'm going to post your cartoon to my new blog if it's OK with you. Found your cartoon doing a search on my topic, Physician Career Change. here's my blog:http://physiciancareerchange.blogspot.com/
Nowadays, physicians have more chance on networking as there are more sites created primarily for physicians and all those in the medical field to share views and experiences with each other. You can try visiting FreelanceMD (http://freelancemd.com). It is a community of physicians that gives you more control of your career, income, and lifestyle.
Some of my classmates and I have a running joke about our backup careers. I have chosen movie theater usher (free popcorn and movies? yes please). Others include: tattoo artist, pet groomer, and child life specialist (the ladies who play with sick kids in the hospital)
I am Neonatologist...but an Amway Distributor...more rewarding, more fun...and ongoing income...glad I have the opportunity that does not describe any of the feelings described in the cartoon....how would you like to practice medicine for free, for the love of it...and your bills taken care of from another source? Love being a wife, mom, doctor, business owner : )
