Main Question or Discussion Point

Yeah? Why? Was it because you thought you'd get the money you want with it? Or was it because it felt "right"? Or just because being a doctor could be fun?

What was your undergrad degree in? Physics, by any chance? What are the tuition fees like? Is there any way around them? (I'm guessing it's lots of $$)

What kind of patient contacts have you had so far? How did you feel about them?

I have a good friend EE who went back to medical school, and I now work as a part-time EMT in addition to full-time EE. Patient contacts and your feelings about them are the key...
