I am a 36 year old Art teacher who has recently heard the call to Medicine.
In the fall, I will be attending a Post Bacchalaureate Pre Med Program at a local University to prepare me to become a doctor.
Even though I realize that it will take years, I am looking forward to the experience, and I am starting this thread to get your thoughts, advice or general theories about my situation.
Any doctors in the house?
Teaching is wonderful, but it just isn't a way to help humanity directly, in a concrete way.
AM I just crazy, or is anyone else out there making the switch to something more directly helpful to his or her fellow human beings?
I guess I'm asking if my story is a singularity or if other ATS'ers are feeling motivated to do more...
Any replies are truly appreciated, thanks in advance!
