I found this thread today, where a student is leaving medicine. I have to say that I support BrendaB 100%.
I just want to say to please, please make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into. In this thread, BrendaB deals with the “was it a waste?” question rather nicely.
This is a topic that we’ve visited here before at MSH, but the decision is always as tough as nails. This is a great thread for those of you still contemplating getting started in medicine or those that are unhappy and looking for an outlet.
