I’m a mom who is torn between applying for med school or choosing a master’s degree that is less stressful and time consuming for the sake of my kids. If you had to do it all over again, what would you choose? Pros and cons of being a mother and a doctor? Honest opinions, please.
Ah, tricky question. I think this has come up before and the interns always give lukewarm answers. I’m an intern, so I’ll give the lukewarm answer. 🙂 I don’t know! The longer I am here the more it just seems like a job. Granted, it is a job I really enjoy, but I have really enjoyed other things as well. It gets depicted as very glamorous, but there are still times when I am tempted to stay home, because I really don’t get to see my kids much! Again, intern perspective. I’m hoping things are less crazy when I’m done, but who knows.
