A good friend, who happens to be a doctor (internal medicine), recently retired. As such, I penned this brief analysis of the world of physicians as a tribute to him on his departure. Young people should take heed.
“So You Want to be a Doctor, eh?”
It’s not about physiology, anatomy, biology, clinical reasoning, genetics, chemistry, disease analysis, medical neuroscience, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, psychology, respiratory, etc., all of the things inspiring you to become a doctor.
It’s about insurance, government bureaucracy, certification, financing, managing staff and the office, litigation, technology fads, pharmaceuticals, listening and empathy, frustration, depression, fears and phobias, mileage, long hours and sleep deprivation. This is the reality.
But if you’ve got patience and endurance, the ability to accept pain and not complain, to adapt and overcome adversity, and possess a respect for the human spirit, it can be personally rewarding and the world will marvel at your fortitude.
Keep the Faith!
