What it means to leave clinical medicine
“Not too long ago, a circumstance occurred. I have experienced similar circumstances several times in my career. However, this time, my response was different. It was like a switch in my brain flipped. I was ready to leave clinical medicine. It was time for the next chapter.
Wow! It was a moment of surprise, relief, and excitement, quickly followed by a WTF? Where was this thought coming from? There was no “maybe I should consider a change.” I was so sure that I was ready to leave that I was concerned. What was happening? I had never before said to myself, let alone others, that I was ready to leave clinical medicine. Sure I had joked with colleagues on bad days. We brainstormed very cynically what else we could do with our medical degree. But I was never serious. Or was I?”
