I've seen people submit questions to your blog, so I thought I'd ask one myself!
I recently started reading this blog, and I love hearing such a real perspective on medicine. I'm a grad student, and my plan has always been to apply to med school. All my pre-reqs, MCAT, etc. are complete. However, a discussion with a dental student recently got me thinking about dentistry. My main concern with medicine has been the lifestyle and strain on family. Not to say that dentists have it easy, but I get the impression that they generally have more manageable schedules. Of course, I would need to find the same passion for dentistry that I have for medicine. But I'm curious if any of you considered any other health professions. Would a career in health care with a friendlier lifestyle still fulfill you?
This blog is such a great resource. Thank you all for your insightful writing!
