Take As Needed
- In medicine, efforts, results, and knowledge are not equal. Further, society values and incentivizes us differently. Is it "fair?" That's probably unanswerable, and we need to realize that and just grow up.
- For docs to consider changing their career was unthinkable just a few short years ago, but gender equality, increasing cultural and racial diversity, the recent switch from majority private practice to majority salaried practices, and a sea change in attitudes and expectations among young docs have put many old assumptions about doctors' careers to the question.
