I was wondering if any of you left the medical world for business? I am a medical student already losing passion for patient care. (I recently posted a similar question under the career topic). I want to research different career options now before I am swept up in the match maddness of 4th year. I understand that some students even do a combined MD/MBA program, although I am not sure what most of them do after they finish school. It seems that although many successful business men/women work very hard, they have VERY good benefits- such as long maternity leave and more part-time options. And work is over when you leave the office. Do any of you have any experiences you can share with me??
