I think you hit upon what will undoubtedly be a major, major crisis in our society---doctors will be retiring early in their careers, and medical schools will be getting fewer and fewer applicants. Why be a doctor if you have put up with all that nonsense?


You've read this doctor's mind. I'm a 42 year old physician, who has had it. Medicine, itself, is great but I can't put up with all the baggage anymore. Instead of spending time in the evenings reading medical journals, I spend my time learning everything I can about being frugal and retiring early. I hope to be out by age 50.
