So, I want to clean up my act. I want to help people. I want to save lives.
I want to become a doctor. I'm good with numbers and pharmacology. Maybe an anesthesiologist? What's your advice? Anyone in med school? Thanks in advance.

becoming a doctor sounds noble and great but in my mind its not much better than becoming a cop or a soldier. you are a faceless cog in a nationwide machine with no soul or compassion. think you will be using your knowledge and training to solve complex problems and improve lives? nope. you will be matching symptoms to the Book of Diagnoses in Latin and then prescribing drugs, even if that is not the approach you would prefer. doctors have zero leeway in their treatments and have to follow "the rules" which are often solely based around compensation from insurance companies. consider becoming something in the healthcare field other than an MD for a little bit less depression.

That's what having a job is like. I don't see the problem here.

you speaking from experience or out your asshole?
not true unless you want it to be (or maybe if you live in the US of A)

the vast majority of health care professions have much more leeway in their problem solving and decision making than doctors. doctors are basically confined to preset flowcharts, of which 99% end at "prescribe drug X" or "refer to specialist Y"


yes, like the vast majority of this site's users, i live in the us. do you feel proud to have guessed this very likely fact? if i lived in fucking norway or taiwan i probably wouldnt be talking shit about my country's healthcare system online now would i
