1) Country in which you’re studying medicine Ireland

2) Year of med school (and number of years in program) 3 out of 4 

3) Future specialties in which you’re interested OBS/GYN or GP. 

4) Would you do it again? Med school that is. Not a snowballs chance in hell. I would have either just gone into nursing or midwifery straight out of high school or kept my cushy office job I had throughout high school and undergrad.

Hi fellow med bees! How crazy are we to get married during med school? As if we weren’t busy enough! 😛

 

Country: Australia

 

Current year: Year 3/4 graduate program

 

Possible future specialties: Emergency, GP, Anaesthetics

 

Would you do it again? Some days yes, some days no! Despite being in the midst of exams (last one is tomorrow!), today is a yes. I completed a psychology degree to meet grad entry requirements and it was a long road to get in, but I did and remind myself of how much I wanted it. And what a privilege it is, don’t you think? I get down some days because of the pressure and sacrifices, but having seen the other side (previously worked in psych field), the grass isn’t greener.

Haven’t been a med student for nearly 6 years now, but I thought I’d stop by. 

 

Country – Studied in Ireland, worked there for 3 years, then got the hell out! Moved to Oz, far superior working conditions!

 

Year – Nearly 6 years post graduation 🙂

 

Specialty – Medicine (gen med at present)

 

Would I Do it again? – Hmmm, yes and no. Medicine is the best and worst job in the world. I’ve had both amazing and terrible experiences, but at least I can say that it wasn’t boring! I’ve got some pretty interesting stories out of it at the very least. Plus I met my wonderful FI in college, so I would never pass that up.
