Did anyone here pivot and go to med school after consulting? Did you do a post bacc? Did anyone do the opposite and go from med school to consulting? Would love any input here as I’m really considering a switch. Let me know if I can dm you to discuss. Thank you in advance!

From my experience, tons of people go both ways. Medical school is very open to older applicants with a good uGPA, MCAT, and a good post-bacc if they don't have all the prereqs. There is a 50/50 split between regretting the decision and happy they pivoted. I work almost exclusively with all types of physicians young and old. The older ones loved their experience, but the younger ones have a lukewarm reaction about medicine. They say there are many, many variables during school and, especially, residency out of your control that can make your experience toxic and grueling. Another thing I'm hearing is that depending on where you practice something called mid-level encroachment undermines your power as a physician as NPs and PAs are increasingly given more power and compensation.

I’ve heard of some UG programs pushing mid performing Med School students towards PA programs as they’re trying to make an effort to build a PCP base. Not sure how this will end but I can’t see the AMA taking kindly to it.

I’m a former surgeon.

Do not go to medical school. The sacrifice is more than you can possibly comprehend right now. Medical school was studying almost non-stop for four years, and that is the easy part.

A surgical residency is being on call for 28hrs straight every 3-4 days. On a non-call day, you’re waking up at 4:30 am everyday and leave at 7 pm earliest. You get 4 days off for the whole month.

That is your schedule for 5 years straight, while you make $10/hr. Then you have to hear the PAs who work 4 days a week and make $110k complain that they work too hard.

Then once you finish residency and start praticing, you deal with NPs who challenge your decisions and patients who hate you because they feel you make too much.

Being a doctor is a terrible career and no one should pursue. Ask currently practicing doctors and at least 80% will tell you the same.

Don’t ask the older doctors. The medicine they trained in and experienced is completely different from the reality today.
