thats why u shouldnt just do it for the money, otherwise u will be burnt out real quick and not be having much fun
i kid u not my brothers motivation was a deal he made w my parents that if he makes med then my parents have to pay half the price of his first car
this is why I call him a dumbass
I genuinely wonder if he has a passion for med, enough to last through the demands of it

Genuine question: Do people who study medicine actually have a life? I need my life, i cannot be studying my 20s away...
The work load is high for med school but you can definately still have a good social life and hobbies. On the other hand I found that I had less free time as a junior doctor compared to being a med student and then after that doing specialty training/specialty exams was by far the most stressful and all consuming period.

Most ATs are well into their late 20s as far as I've seen and there is no concept of work/life balance at least until after you are 30. That being said it's probably specialist deoendent.

Yep, the amount of sacrifice after med school when you do further specialty training as a registrar is very dependent on the specific specialty. Anything surgical in particular is brutal but physician training, critical care, radiology etc are all hard as well.

In saying that life for me is pretty damn good now I’m on the other side of training. Well remunerated, I work 4 days a week, I get very generous annual leave. I have great colleagues. The work is stimulating.

Very much a case of delayed gratification.
