Not off topic at all and you are absolutely right and Mark is being too modest, an examiner is a doctor just much as any other and in some sense deserves the respect for dealing with the dead, most doctors can't deal with that part.

 

On a separate note, congrats on getting your MD/PhD and best of luck to you. Its very admirable, how far along are you? I was 3 years into an MD/PhD  program back in 98-2000 when I had to give up the program (long story) and came back home and went into law instead. I am still in touch with all my classmates (most doctors now, some doctor/professors and some doctor/researchers) and its always good times. Good luck to you.

Maybe someone will find an unpublished sequel to Catch 22 in Joseph Heller's estate, and it will have been set in a Capital One call center. Smiley Tongue

You made a choice to do a noble profession, nothing wrong with that. Karma will pay you back.

Thanks!

 

I'm 4 years in (ie 2yrs of med school down, 2yrs of grad school down). I'll be in school forever. Smiley Happy

 

Sorry you had to give up the MD/PhD. At least law school was only 3 years!

Yeah with everything though, it seems I have been in school all my life. 5 years to get BioChemistry, Physics and Philosophy majors, 2 years Public Health (Epidemology) masters, 3 years of med school (+2 years of PhD before I decided to combine the program). Then, I wish it was just 3 years of law and that's it, that would have been nice. I had to go back to get a second bachelor in Psychology (forensics emphasis) and Political Science (law emphasis) for 2 years (thank god we can recycle some of the GE courses), then 4 years of law school, since I have to work to support my family and then finally the bar and well you get the picture. I feel like I have been a student all my life and probably will be for the rest of it Smiley Very Happy Good times though and I do miss medicine sometimes but I am content with my choice.
